Hi there,

I was just wondering if a 450w PSU adequately supply power for a 5750, 4gb ram and a generic quad core. The 450w is all that I have available to me at this time, so im just wondering about how well it will fare.

What kind of 450 watt PSU? You should be OK for anything but a noname generic.

A 5750 is a pretty low powered card. It only needs 6 or 7 amps at full power.

Its a generic brand. None that I can see.

I would suggest investing in a decent 80+/80+ bronze PSU within your budget for peace of mind 24/7 ops

I would rather be safe than sorry and get something a little more powerful and name brand, that way you have peace of mind and you have room to upgrade again.
