Hi

Unfortunately, without any information I'm unable to assist you with specifics. My general advice would be to manually check the cabling yourself (See if you have enough) then check the specifications of the power supply to see if it will support your new hardware

The op should just give us the model number of the power supply to know the information of it.

Most OEM PSUs such as HiPower, Dell, Delta, and other OEM Maufacturers, typically do not include extra cables with the exception of a extra SATA power cable or two, unless the OEM PC in question has a video card that requires external power.

Chances are, you'll have to buy a new power supply. Assuming that it's using a standard form factor, and not a SFF or Pico form factor (Or anything proprietary) I would go for the Corsair CX 450, not to be confused with the older CX430. It typically goes for around 45 USD.

This or it's a mediocre power supply.

What's your existing PC, and which parts you wanna upgrade?
