You have to make sure your PSU has a plug to power a GPU and that the psu has enough power as well.

The 4350 doesn't use much power at all, so any competent GPU will be additional drain.

That said, consider a Radeon 7750 or 7770. Both quite efficient and should give less power problems.

It's not a really powerful card, but it will get the job done, and given your OEM system status, it's probably a safe pick.
