Dell Vostro 260 GPU Upgrade

Hi, I have a older Dell Vostro 260, With an i5 2400, 12GB of DDR3, and a 300w power supply that came with the computer. I am going to be adding a graphics card to this pc, and was wondering if the RX 460 was compatible. It has no requirement for a power supply connecter and should only draw 75W from the PCI-E slot on the motherboard.

No it is not compatible with the 12 year old model. That card requires 400w power supply. Best to use it as is until you can buy a new computer. Radeon™ RX 460 HD Graphics Cards for Desktop | AMD

This version of the card is an HP model that requires no external power from the power supply. Even though it is recommended to have a 400w PSU, it draws all of its power from the PCI-E slot. I was just wondering if it was compatible with the bios of the motherboard on my Vostro, and what the power that its PCI-E slot gives.
