  1. I don't think that is a good power supply, but if you are using on-board graphics, it is enough in theory.

    If you have a dedicated graphics card we need to know which one to answer.
  2. Hello now i have chipset but next month i will buy Asus GTX 750 1GB GDDR5 and when i buy this i want to ugrade my processor....i think this will help you
  3. Still theoretically enough. 300 watt is the min requirement, for that GPU, on a normal system. Yours is normal.

    I wouldn't run anything but a good brand name, though.
    Even if you get the cheapest of the good brands, it is safer.
  4. millwright this 300 watt it's for the graphic card gtx 750 and i know that it's enough but my question it's 400 w and 15 a enough for Intel i3-4130 3.4 ghz ?
  5. I did say it is enough, didn't I.

    First the CPU is irrelevant, as it is enough for an i5, or even an i7. Even overclocking.

    You go by the graphics card to size a power supply, unless you have an unusual setup like 6 0r 8 HDs in a RAID 0.

    If it only has 15 amps on the 12v, that confirms, that it is not a good brand name.

    Good ones will have more like 20 to as much as 30 12v amps.

    Still the manufacturer requirement I gave you, takes into account crappy power supplies, and is inflated, from what you really need.
  7. Thanks man :)
  8. The i3 only draws 54 watts.

    Even the mainstream i7s only draw 84 watts.

    And you are welcome.
  9. Oh and the GTX 750Ti only draws 60 watts.

    The 300 watt recommendation on the graphics card is for the whole system.
