PSU - Graphics card capability


I'm going to update my graphics card, but in order to do so i need to get a new PSU.

I've scoped out the ATI Radeon™ HD 5750 as my card of choice. -

I've also seen a CIT 450W Gold 12Cm Silent Atx Power Supply which i think i might get.

My question is would this PSU get optimal usage out of the graphics card? My main worry is the "with one 75W 6-pin PCI Express® power connectors recommended" part of the graphics card's specs, would this PSU provide this? I'm working with a dell inspiron 531.

Any help would be appreciated,

Thank you.

  1. That is not a good PSU see if you can find an Antec, Corsair or Seasonic.
  2. +1 for that PSU is no good. If your looking for a cheap PSU the best cheap one to suit that system would be Antec Earthwatts 380w . Although it states 380w vs your choice CIT 450w, the CIT is 450w MAX where as the antec is rated 380w CONTINUOUS. that CIT unit would not produce 380w continuous and is a low quality unit. If it doesnt blow up when you plug it in, it will blow up in 6 months time. Go with above suggestion of Antec, Seasonic or corsair.
  3. The EA380 would be plenty for your system!
  4. Thanks for the help, was close to buying that PSU! Think i will go with the EA380,

    thanks a bunch!
