I have a computer that I built that I want to have better graphics with, and I was wondering if this product will work with a 150W PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The specs are:
CPU: Core i3-530
HDD: Intel 80GB ssd (i ****** the model number, not a 320 or a 510 though) and HITACHI Travelstar 250GB
RAM: Patriot 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3-1333
Motherboard: H55ITX-C-E
Case: Antec ISK 300-150
PSU: 150W PSU included with case

Will the GPU in the link work with a 150W PSU with the stuff in the specs? Thanks in advance.

It requires a 400W PSU; however, user feedback reports it handling comparible GPUs. I just looked at the case on Newegg and it appears that the PSU is not a standard size. Could be problematic to replace but they don't give much information.

Yes, maybe. But I tell ya man, these included PSU's more often than not are complete junk and you run severe risk of sending your PC components into a flaming orbit.

but sure the Video card will run with that.

That product is so specialized Antec doesn't even make and upgrade psu for it.
That card is very low power 7W idle and 20W full.
It's possible it may work but that's your call.
That psu is very inefficient btw under 70%.
You could probably McGyver another miniITX supply in it.

Possibly maybe the GTX 210 might work? Or are there any Graphic Cards that are the same grade as HD 5450 and would cause no problems with my 150W PSU? Also, on Newegg someone said that they used a Core i5 and a HD 6570 in the case... so maybe it might work? The HD 6570 also looks like its the best in the low profile video cards too.

Actually a GT 210 draws 30W plus the 5450 is a superior card.
The 6xxx series consume more power.
The 5450 is still your best option.
I'd still recommend you measure out your current psu and see if there's a viable replacement.

So are you saying that it will be possible without replacing the PSU if I use the HD 5450?

You could try it but there's no way you could tweak the cpu or gpu further then stock settings.
The cpu is rated at 73W,SSD-5W,HDD-10W,GPU-20W,plus other components.
Your're at the highest load level of that psu 90%+.
I wouldn't advise it.

Thanks! I will go with the HD 5450 for now.
