More about will work
  1. I doubt if any those cards would run with that 450 watt power supply. You should price out the same parts over on Newegg, since if you purchase that kit you will be paying for a video card and power supply that are worthless.
  2. you probaly should buy a new psu because 450 might be to low and thats psu that you have looks a cheap to me
  3. I wouldn't trust my computer with that PSU, the only cases with PSU's I have found that have reliable PSU's with them are usually Antec's. So before you buy a GPU I would make sure you get a reliable 400-500W PSU at the least because that 450W PSU could very well cost you your whole investment.

    Oh ya, 450w would be pushing it for sure.

    The gtx 560's need at least 500w. Try something like this:

  5. thanks you guys... so u were telling me that those GPUs will take too much power...but how about a more power-friendly GPU...like the HD 7770?
    do you think that would still be pushing it? i really dont want to buy a new PSU, so im trying my best to avoid it. Would i do better with an HD 7770?

    i no it says 600w requrement, but some others told me that those requirements are blown out of proportion.

    ITS not thats its pushing it its because most case psu are dirt cheap
