Agreed. I also would not try.

Are you somewhere in Asia? Iball's are not something you see in the West. Anyway, if you are, I do not know what brands you have readily available.

A decent quality PSU that will power that card, however I'd personally go with something larger:


That PSU is a very poor choice for modern systems with only 18A available on 12V.
