Can I run the Sapphire Radeon R9 390 on my motherboard which is Acer Aspire TC-605?

I'm thinking of buying the Sapphire Radaeon R9 390 but I'm not sure if it would work with my motherboard. If you think it isn't going to work, just give me recommendations (cheap ofcourse :))

I really don't know a whole bunch about computers and this is my first thread.

    It will work in the motherboard.

    The questions are-

    1. Will a 390 physically fit inside your case?
    2. Is you psu powerful and/or good enough?

    2. I will need to buy a new PSU. My current PSU is 300w. I think I will need 600w.

    Assuming a modern i5/i7 Haswell, you're normal max in gaming should be under 400W.

    You might as well get a quality 600W though since it's ideal to keep the load low, and the fan won't be as loud. Here's one example:

    (You'll have to manually measure what LENGTH of card is supported unless you can find that info online)
