Hey Toms Hardware!

I hope you answer this thread as today, I have a question concerning an ATI HD450 1GB Graphics Card, I was wondering how many "+12V" amperage I need on my PSU to run that GPU, this is my setup at the moment;

Processor(s): AMD Athlon 64 5400+ X2 + Optimizing Software [TOTAL=8.1GHz]
Memory: 2024MB DDR2
Hard Drive: (160GB) 3GB/s SATA
Sound Card: Realtek HD Audio Output (7.1)
Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition (Service Pack 3)
Motherboard: ASUS M2N MX SE Plus [1 PCIe x16, 1 AGP, 2 PCI]
PSU: Q-TEC 650W [+12V Rail = 25A Peak]
Monitor: ACER AC713 [VGA Output]

Also, I would like to know the system requirements needed to be met to run this video card.

Thanks alot in advance,

I think it draws about 2 amps at maximum load.
You do mean the 3450, right? If so I take it this is a HTPC or 'serious' work system, because the 3450 will barely run Doom!
