Hi,
I have a 450 W PSU [ CIL - ODYSSEY ] JANUARY 2012 Model no. 450 PA 10091 link- http://www.bazaar99.com/2008/07/odyssey-450w-computer-p...

And the GPU i am planning to get is
" Sapphire AMD/ATI Radeon R7 250 with Boost R7 250 1GB DDR5 1 GB DDR5 Graphics Card " link - http://www.flipkart.com/sapphire-amd-ati-radeon-r7-250-...
Now it needs 500W

The motherboard i am planning to get is "Gigabyte GA-H61M-D2H Motherboard"
link - http://www.flipkart.com/gigabyte-ga-h61m-d2h-motherboar...


Will my PSU work with the motherboard and most importantly will the PSU be able to run the graphic card.

Thanks

I don't know where they get 500W from. I don't think they even have a power connector - so they don't use any more than 75W from the pcie slot.

http://www.realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/Page362.htm says 380W which sounds right.

wowowowo hold it! r7 250 is totally NOT worth it, if you are that tight on budget get an HD 7750 GDDR5 version, much better performance for a very similar price

and the 7750 only needs 450w PSU as max (and it will use much less)

well that is something i am confused about, i asked around this site and people said R7 250x is better than 7750
And i saw some benchmarks and saw that R7 250x outperformed 7750.
Though i could use some advice as i am still confused

Thanks
