Hi, I have a
Gateway gt5690 desktop pc, with
300w psu, the model is (DPS-300PB-3A Delta Electronics 300 Watt Power Supply).
Will it be sufficient enough to handle ati radeon hd 7750? also can it handle the overclocked version of the card by asus?

Yes but as long as you are not overclocking everything or running a lot of HDDs, 300W is truly the minimum though so I would recommend upgrading the PSU as soon as you can but it should work fine, not 100% sure about the overclocked ASUS edition though, probably would be fine but can't guarantee it

That power supply only has 18a(216w) on the 12v rail(most important rail), with a stock 7750 you'll be running the power supply close to its limit, I would suggest a PSU upgrade.

Thank you for your reply, I dont really plan to overclock it without getting a new psu but im currently running two Sata HDD's on it, will that be an issue? if its too risky i will grab a higher psu but since im on a tight budget i'd prefer not to do so if there is no imminent risk.

yes i do plan to upgrade the psu, but bcz of my tight budget i was reluctant as of now, but is it a high risk? if so i'll give the psu a priority. Thanks

You should be able to run it OK. The 7750 has a TDP of 55W and draws 43W at maximum load (source). That would be about 4A that it needs from the +12V rail. For the OC'd version, I cannot say. It depends on how far they've tweaked it.

It's dual 18A rails. It's actually an ok psu and will have no problem.

Thanks, that eases me about getting the simple one.
