  1. Its highly unlikely that this setup will work with your present PSU.
  2. 6790 don't pull 500W is not so power hungry. Your psu is weak. You need an 400w-450W minimum psu.
  3. thx for replies ... thats so sad as budget is tight here :( i hoped that the PSU will run that setup .. will it burn out or will not even turn on ?
  4. It will just not turn on, and dont worry, it will not burn out or cause an explosion.
    Even if it does turn on when you run any intensive applications, the computer will simply shut itself down.
  5. Many Thanks for ur time :) i was hoping to run the NEED for Speed THE run at maximum graphics
  6. surprisingly it worked just fine on 300psu !!
