  1. I would not even try it with that no name PSU.

    $36 Thermaltake TR2 W0070RUC 430W

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

    $50 BFG GS-550 550W (presently out of stock, but this is a very good quality PSU that will last for a few builds)
  2. 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.

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