Power Supply Unit

Hello these is the stats for my old pc that i had for about 5 years
Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit); 2.7GHz Intel Pentium Dual Core E5400; 4GB 800MHz DDR2 SDRAM; 256MB (shared) Nvidia GeForce 7050 integrated graphics chip; 750GB 7,200 rpm Seagate hard drive
i was wondering would i be able to put a nvidia gt 630 inside while still using my 250 watt power supply that came with the pc.
Thanks :)

  1. most likely not a gt 630 needs at least 18amps and most 250w dont deliever i would suggest a xfx,evga, antec psu 500w or up.
  2. On the safer side get a 300W supply.. But the gt 630 is very weak.
  3. yes the gtx 630 is a weak card it wont play games that well. if you want to buy a 500w you can get a r9 270 it will play ultra 60fps same price as a gtx 750ti. if you want to get a 300W a gtx 750ti or just 750 would be good because of the low power consumption
  4. so will it not work at all with the 250 because i have very bad parts in my pc and i was hoping they wouldnt use that much power

    A GeForce GT 630 needs 20 amps on the 12v + rail and a 350 watt power supply.
