Hi, I wanted to know if the hd 5450 or 6570 will break if I use a 250 watt psu while playing battlefield 3 or 4. And if anything else will break. Also what settings should I put them on?

Thank you

If the PSU is to low it could burn out the power supply. You wont get full performance in game which will lead to game crashes and maybe blue screens.

i've just put a 7750 in a system with a 250 watt psu. it was a close call but i decided to try it and it worked! if a psu fails due overload it might damage other components tho, keep that in mind

I doubt it will even turn on even my phone uses more power


Is that just the 6570 or for both?

PSU, im not sure about graphics card. You might be able to turn it on but once you game and use all of the power supply that's when some damage could happen.
