  1. The GTS 450 needs a 400W PSU with 22A on the 12V rails so you should be fine with your current PSU but it is a good choice to switch your generic PSU with a Corsair PSU
  2. ohhh thanks a lot for the response!

    Im gonna buy POWER CABLE Y SPLITTER cause i have 1 left 4pin gts 450 requires 2 4pin power
  3. thanks
  4. your power supply will blow up as soon as any load is applied to the video card. A PSU that is that cheap end nasty will not produce its rated power. an antec 380w unit will produce more continuous power.
  5. so the PSU will blow and my GPU will not harm?
  6. IMO, first get the PSU and then whichever video card you want.
  7. i want to play so i buy first the videocard? im on tight budget
  8. I agree with upgrading the PSU first as well.
