I'm going to buy Sapphire AMD HD7750 1GB DDR5 but I have a 300w PSU. My budget is £70 so I can't buy a PSU. I was just wondering if a 300w could handle it
My PC Specs is
CPU:Intel Core i3
GPU:Intel Hd Graphics
RAM:6gb
This is the link to the graphics card
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sapphire-HD7750-Retail-PCI-E-Gr...
I am also going to use it for recording videos, Cinema 4D and Sony Vegas with it so please tell, it is near Christmas!!!!

300w is too low. Is the £70 for your GPU?

Full system specs are needed(image of the power supply sticker if you can), not all 300 watt power supplies are built equal and i3 does not tell us what model of i3 it is.

A quality 300 watt power supply would have no problems with a 7750(50 watt peak for those cards) and any i3/i5(should be under 100 watts) on the market.

Sorry, thought I had hit post before. Must have not gone.

Your cpu takes very little power.

You would need to know the amperage or wattage of the 12 volt rail(combined rating for multi rail power supplies.)

example images

Combined rated in max AMPs


Combined rated in WATTs.


amps x voltage = wattage
and
wattage / voltage = amps

so either number works. 22 x 12 = 264 watts combined on the first and 288 / 12 = 24 amps for the second power supply. This makes the second one more powerful(but the first one is a small for factor power supply.).

hp has used many power supplies over the years.

removing the side cover will not hurt the system and you would have to do that to install a card either way.

What kind of specs does your computer have

Do ever run your computer with CPU and disk at max?
I sometimes run a server and game at the same time

300w is very very low and i don't even know where you can buy such low PSU's at hehe. I would say buy atleast 600w with minumum 42a in the 12v section. You can also on you www.hwcompare.com and check everything you need to know about the grahic card's texel rate, pixel rate and how much W it requires

Seasonic has a pile of 300 watt power supplies for low powered systems(as do many power supply makers).

While getting a 600 watt power supply does not hurt anything(but maybe a bit of efficiency). Some users do not want to upgrade if they do not need to.

I mean my 300 watt power supply(22amps @ 12 volts) in my 24/7 media center system just keeps on going with its i7 750 + 650 ti without any issues. It is also not like the system takes that much power. 40 watts or so at idle and 140-150 for most games 180 watts is about the most I can get it to pull at the wall.

@ joshuabg you would have to give much more detail than 250 watts and what other hardware it is running.

Can you get the specs of the sticker or take a picture of the sticker on the power supply.

At peak a 7750 would only take 20-25 watts more. so unless you are already on the edge, your chances are quite good.

Hi - You would need to furnish the +12v amps from the PSU as nuke suggested, to determine if the 250 in the PC is sufficient. Yes, a decent quality 300w PSU will run that system with a 7750 comfortably. That PSU is not a std
ATX (as you probably can tell from the slim case), but a TFX size. There are several decent TFX 300-350w PSU's avail from ~ $28 - $62 if you feel you want to upgrade anyway.

I don't believe there are any decent TFX form factor PSU's currently available greater than 350w.

I would choose Seasonic vs FSP.

Hi - Dell usually provides decent (albeit low power) PSU's in their systems, so if the PSU were to become
too stressed it should shut down with no damage to your system.

However, now that I see you multitask & game simultaneously, you should upgrade the PSU if you can afford to do so.

So i can can get the 7750 and it will draw about 20 watts more

Oops - forgot the LP, will run approx $8 more:
The only LP that will keep the pair under $140 is out of stock:

You might check with them on in stock,

I happily ran a HD7750 for a year in my old system - Q8200, 4 GB (4x1GB) DDR2 ram, DVDrw, SDD, HDD and with an external USB 3.0 HDD powered by a PCIe card - all in a Dell 545s studio slim with it's 300W PSU. Recently upgraded to an XPS 8500 so machine has been relegated to light duties from the gaming I used it for. So given as the i3 is a much lower-powered CPU than the 95w Q8200 I think you'll be fine.
