Hi, i was wondering if my system could run VisionTek ATI Radeon HD 4350 found on this page:

I have a Compaq PC from HP with the specifications here:

My computer has a 250W PSU and really don't want to change that and this card is the only one i can find that seems to be able to run it just looking at the requirements. I know it's possible to get better cards at even lower prices but again my PSU is very small and i don't want to change it.

Does anyone think it will work? Please help.

Yes, it will work. Just don't try overclocking the HD4350 and you should be fine.

I don't know why they put 400W there, I think they want to be really really safe. I think it will be fine, as it is the lowest power consuming GPU out there now, and the power consumption I think should be near to 4350 :) .

Because not everyone has modern, efficient systems and because some folks stuff every possible device into their rigs. The recommended rating is just that, a recommendation, a guide, or simply something to keep in mind. Inadequate power can damage components, particularly GPUs.

I ran a 4550 on a 250w PSU with a 50Mhz Overclock and a Core 2 Quad and it had no problem. He'll be fine.
