I'm buying a new gaming computer and allot of people are confusing me, some people are saying yes and some are saying no.It says the video card's consumption is about 100W-150W?

Here's the computer's link is it good enough? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Here are my specs:

Processor: AMD Phenom II x6 1035T @ 2.7GHz
RAM: 8GB DDR3 1333
Hard Drive: 1TB SATA 7200RPM
Optical Drive: 16x DVD+/-RW Dual Layer Burner
Graphics Card: ATI Radeon HD 5750 1GB GDDR3 SDRAM
Sound Card: Integrated 7.1 Channels
Power Supply: 300W (I don't know the brand, not included)

it really depends on the PSU output.

if I would have put this system together, I would have chosen at least a 450W PSU

I don't know why they would place such a low power psu in a gaming pc, for that matter, that six core phenom is not a great gaming cpu, a 955 quad core would be a much better solution.

In most cases an X4 is as good or even better than a X6 for gaming as most games are really made for dual cores with more coming out thats optimized for tri and quad cores.

If i were you, i'd grab an Antec EA380D/ 430D or a Corsair CX430V2 for cheap and it'll solve any anxiety you have. IIRC the lowest cards I'd put in a comp with a 300watt unit is the 6670 or 5670....
