Basically any of be common 500w-ish bronze rated options.

the most common being the evga 500B or anything in its similar price range, lots of options for that 

 

for a gpu, anything that fits and is cheap, a 750ti is like 50$ used on eBay now, 560ti is even less and performs about the same (though is much more power hungry) but the 2gb options aren't as easy to find 

weird outlier cards people don't think of often can also be pretty cheap, GTX 465, 760ti (if you can find one) 660, etc

workstation equivalents like the fermi teslas can be found for pretty cheap but they are very hot and very loud for their performance 

Thank you very much sir I have other question

 

I was told the motherboard only ouputs 35 watt, these are supported in this?

If you want a cheap option then an evga 500b and a 750ti, if you want something with a bit more power then a 1650 would be an ok option, if not a then a 1050.

If your changing the power supply you can put in a rx 470/570. I did this with a 990. You will lose some SATA ports as the card will block them.

 

I did this build with a similar system

$22 after rebate and promo code. I believe there is free shipping with shop runner. This is just an ok power supply. It won't start a fire. It has a 5 year warranty and you are not risking much

thank you!!!!  do you know where i can get cheap gpu aswell?

No your psu should be fine. Although it is probably 10 years old and anything can happen, but plenty of people have done this without problems

No way to predict what will happen if a PSU fails. It's unlikely to damage your parts but it's always possible. Should be fine though

Yes. The 460 is a better card.

The motherboard only puts out 35w, is there a card that uses Sata power or 35w
