  1. No you need at least a 500w your says 125w MAX. I just bought a generic 500w PSU for $29. They are fairly cheap.


    *EDIT I Failed to see the big text that it's 600w. You will be fine with a GTS 450, might as well get a GTX 460 though.
  2. ahahahaha
  3. You have, for all practical purposes, no more than a 400 watt power supply.

    Look at the 5 volt rating - 45 amps. That is 225 watts. Look at the 125 watt portion of the label. It says "3.3 v and 5 v combined power 125 w max.

    A GTS450 pulls about 100 watts at full load from the PSU, so according to the PSU label, you should be OK. But I pointed out above why you cannot trust that label.

    Even if it works, you need a better power supply.
  4. thanks
  5. it will explode. dont buy generic psu's. If you do buy it, im sure you will learn your lesson the hard way as many others, including myself have. Generic PSU's like that will NOT produce their rated output, especially not at real world temperatures.
