  1. You should see a huge difference in performance in going to a GTS450.But that's a really horrible power supply.I would suggest spending an additonal $40 for a new power supply that you can rely on.
  2. Though it is a terrible PSU, it should still power your system and a GTS 450 fine, although it is cannot supply 600W on the +12V (Or close, 30x12 = 360W) It should still be more than enough for a GTS 450, though I'd get a HD 5770 as it has better performance and uses less power.

    So you mean that my PSU is ok to power the GTS 450?
  4. Basicly your Power Supply is actually only a 360 watt.But it is still enough to power your PC with the GTS450.Although I still reccomend upgrading it ASAP.

    Yea after a month i will upgrade my PSU because im on tight budget my 1st priority is to buy GTS 450 because when i play games like Prototoype setting ALL LOW it still laggs with 8400SE so i think after i upgrade it to GTS 450 i can play HIGH SETTINGS with no lagg
    :pt1cable:
  6. That will probably be so.The GTS450 is a huge improvement over your current card.

    These games i played but my geforce 8400SE laggs on it

    SETTINGS : ALL IN LOW but still laggg it look like there is alwayss "SLOW MOTION"
    Prototype
    Killing Floor
    Need for speed MW
    Call of duty MW 2

    Gonna buy GTS 450 soon thanks for the answers it helps me a lot after that i will upgrade my PSU to corsaircx500 after a month :)
  8. My PSU dont have PCIe 6pin molex connecter im gonna buy POWER CABLE Y SPLITTER
  9. Another reason that you should upgrade your power supply asap.A 600watt PSU that doesn't come with any 6-pin connectors is just asking for trouble.

    The card should come with a molex 4 pin to 6pin adapter but it would also be wise to buy one ahead of time since they are realtively cheap
  10. Im gonna buy gts 450 and power cable Y splitter and after a month my next upgrade is my PSU :D

    thanks purple!
  11. Welcome.

    Remember you should look for a molex adapter.4pin to 6pin.
  12. Yea i know because my current generic PSU dont have pcie 6 pin molex adapter. And I have only 1 4pin cable left it requires 2* pin molex :D
  13. nice
