Hello, I have a GeFORCE 8800GT Graphics card I want to put into my HP Pavillion a1700n. What PSU do I need?

If you are referring to using your existing power supply and and just using Molex->PCI adapter, then no. The 8800gt is a relatively power hungry card and the 250-350w psu's that HP uses just aren't up to the task.
