Can My PSU run any graphics card?

hello

i just came to know that my PSU is sooo bad that it may not support any graphics card at all.
if it can support, please suggest me a graphics card.. my budget is $80
need it for some light gaming (like titan quest) at 1280x1024 or 1024x768

specs labelled on the PSU-
AC input : 220 VAC 3A 50Hz

+5v 28A -5V 0.6A
+12v 15A +12v 0.6A
+3.3v 16A +5VSB 2A

ATX 2.03
ATX 12V


my PC-

Intel Core2Duo E4500 @ 2.2 GHz
Mercury PI945GCM (MoBo)
onboard graphics
2 GB RAM
160 GB HDD
1 Fan


and please point out if i am supposed to post this question in any other section :)

  1. What's Ur PSU model..???

    It says that your PSU has single 12V rail and it can produce maximum combined power of 360W [(12V*15A)*2 ]

    I think,presently it can run some of good graphic cards such as HD5670,HD5750, GTS450 in market...

    Correct me, If I am wrong... :D
  2. I would not try to run a gts 450 on a stock psu. It might work but I would upgrade.


    Here is a good simple 80+ psu

  3. Will an HD5670 1GB work?
  4. Most likely yes.
  5. I think that psu will be fine for a 5670 1gb.
  6. but some say it wont work..

    Personally i wouldnt risk it. Virtually all hardware gets its power from 12v. PSUs like this with most of their power available at 3.3 and 5v show a very old cheap design. I think this unit would fail if you tried to draw more than about 200w from it and that card might get you close to drawing that much some times.


    PSU is of a local brand , and labelled 450W.... all other details are in the 1st post..

    is there 100% guarantee of HD 5670 working without burning of any part of my PC?
  7. Nothing is 100% in the computer componet world I high reccomend getting a new powersuply even a 29$ after rebate corsair 430watt at least it really is 430 watt.

    sure, HD5670 1GB will run fine, but I recommend to run it with a QUALITY PSU,which has just 400W...

    because, Ur current PSU can run HD5670 but other hardware components must remain safe in first place...
  9. If i may ask is there a reason you want to add a video card and if so what do you want to do with it? there may be a cheaper soulution here.
