Dimension 3000 power supply and PCI video card

Is there a replacement Power Supply for the Dimension 3000 that has a 400W or so capacity and is a straight plug-in and bolt-in unit for this system?  My son has tons of USB stuff running on this system already (external HDD, MP3 player, webcam, external DVD burner) and we will be installing a new PCI video card.  My concern is that the stock PSU may not be up to it.  Any help?      Thanks

The 3000 has an open back panel, most standard generic stock ATX PSU's, with or without the on/off switch and with either a 20-pin or 20 + 4-pin main motherboard connector, can be installed.

You should be able to buy the power supply unit from a local computer store or from any online vendor.
