  1. Best answer
    it could but it is a cheap power supply, best you get something like a corsair CX 600, you'll get it cheap and you'll have plenty of watt headroom, from a great supplier. Though it is corsair entry level, it is a great PSU for the price.
  2. It should handle it based on wattage, but I doubt it will. Replace it with this one:
    EVGA 500w:

  3. The wattage is fine. The brand is crap. Try a Tier 1 supplier - http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1804779/power-supply-unit-tier-list.html#13224310

    eg Antec HCG 520M
  4. Hello, That PSU seems to be low quality and has a high probability of damaging your other hardware, it also lacks overcharge protection, as far as I saw.
    I'd get something from Antec, XFX or Seasonic, at around 500w. - And Corsair :D They build quality units.
