I Have a 400W PSU With
+12v1 10A
+12v2 14A
I Have 2 HDD's I Can Get Rid of the 2 one if it consumes too much power.
i have no optical drive.
i have a ecs945-gct-m2 motherboard and it should be backwards compatible with my system.
i have 2 sticks of 1gb ddr2 ram.
so can i run it?

Yes ofcourse you can run
400W PSU With +12v1 10A +12v2 14A is enough if its genuine.
BUT if the psu is not a good make might create problem in future.

Not on that low end card it wont. You wont be doing much gaming on that card if that is your purpose for buying it.
