Will i be able to run this graphics card with my 450w power supply and will this fit in my case?

So yea will this 7850 run on my 450w power supply? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161428
my mobo is pretty standard its a micro atx mobo, i have a basic dvd burner to read disks, 8 gb ripjaws for ram, a fx 4100 cpu, a 1 tb 7200 rpm hdd and like I said before I have 450w power supply.
I was just wondering if i needed to get a new psu and will this fit in my case?

  1. From what I can tell, it will not fit into the case.
  2. 450W? What brand? model?
    7850 needs 2x 6pin power connector, I doubt a mere 450W PSU could do that...
    Anyway, we need more info here.. :)
  3. Try for this gpu:

    Takes a lot less power, costs less, and trades blows with the 7850s. Way better bang for buck. Plus only needs one 6-pin connector.

    ok my power supply is a Rosewill Stallion Series RD450-2-SB 450W ATX V2.2 Power Supply and ok how about this graphics card? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161416 will my power supply be enough and the graphics card only needs one 6 pin and willl this fit in my case?
  5. That card should work. But your PSU is bad lol. You should upgrade to a good manufacturer with 500w
    A bad PSU can actually start to cause damage to your other components.

    Is that your PSU?
    Well, not great but acceptable, I don't like the 12V rails configuration: +12V1@14A, +12V2@16A.
    Huff, I would say yes you can run a single HD5850 with that PSU, just don't overclock or anything, your PSU already on it's limit... :)
