Hello I have a generic power supply I think. It is a power logic and it is 550 watts with 25 amps on the 12v rail. Normally I would buy a branded power supply but normally on a generic power supply there is not 25 amps on the 12 volt rail either. Will this run a geforce gts450? The computer has no dvd or extras just the computer and the monitor. The specs are

Athlon x3 440
2gb ddr3
320gb sata
gigabyte motherboard

Thanks in advance.

25A on a single 12V rail translates to a 300 watt output at the max.. Although its enough to drive your rig plus a GTS 450, I would seriouslly advice you to change to at least a Corsair CX 430.. It is not that costly and can deliver more cleaner power compared to the Power Logic unit you possess currently..
