90W is not enough to run anything but the lowest low-power discrete GPUs. The GTX650 alone requires more than 100W peak so there wouldn't be any spare power to run the rest of your PC which will require another 50+W. Optimistically, you would need at least a 200W PSU.

NO! That is WAY too small How are you even running the current setup without the video card on that PSU?

This is the PSU I have: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

630w for $60.

Leaves you with some headroom for upgrading in the future.

you have to tell us the model of the pc, or take it apart and read the label on the power supply.
But I can tell you it isnt 90 watts.

Most GPU-less Intel-based PCs these days use less than 100W under full-load so 90W is quite possible. However, I do not think anybody makes 90W PSUs in standard ATX form factor so if OP really has a 90W PSU, his PC most likely has some form of compact ATX PSU variant.

Most likely a small form factor PC and I was surprised to see this solved before that was cleared up, may not even support the 650Ti!
