  1. I would not run it.
  2. No
  3. Nope, need a 550W minimum.
  4. No, I'd say a good quality 650-700w PSU is what you need. It's a tad big but best to be safe.
  5. Okay thanks for the help ill just wait until the new one arrives it is 650w so that should be good

    You need a power supply with a rating of 434W on the +12V rail to stay below 80% load on the power supply.
    You also need two PCI-E power connectors.
    A really good 450W power supply like the Seasonic G 450 would be fine (not just for two days, but permanently although running at close to capacity).
    Most 450W power supplies would not be ok.

    I don't know if you have ordered your new supply yet, but if not choose quality.
    A good quality 550W power supply would be perfect for this build.
    Seasonic G 550
    Antec HCG 620
  7. no no no...not from such brands...get something like written before Corsair, Antec, PPC, BeQuite, etc.

    I can't find a single review of this supply from a hardware review site.
    It looks cheap and nasty.
    No 80 plus rating.
    No active PFC presumably. Who knows what "PFC ready" means.

    From the same site, this would be much better:
  9. Okay thanks for the help
