Upgrading graphics card

I want to upgrade from a Geforce 8500 GT to a Geforce 650 ti boost but I'm not sure if I need to upgrade the PSU as well. Right now I have a 450 watt DiabloTek PSU

  1. The GTX650 Ti Boost along with your system will draw about 230w and your psu will supply about 320w raw power, so it will work fine. http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/graphics/2013/03/26/nvidia-geforce-gtx-650-ti-boost-2gb-review/8
  2. i wouldn't even own a diablotech ps. you're on the edge but it could work.

    Yes I also wouldn't trust that PSU. The real question is do your PSU has a 6 pin power connector ? A decent PSU of 450W will be enough for that GPU.
