I wouldnt reccomend it no.

And If you decide to get a new PSU for whatever reason, buy the 6790 - its much faster than the 550ti and its the same price.

I wouldn't use that to power any video card, it's not meant to, that's why it doesn't have a pci-e connector.

Besides, you never told us what the rest of your system is.......how could we tell you if the psu is enough without knowing what your other components are????

This psu is only $16.99 after $8 promo code and $20 rebate.

Agreed, yea that PSU i hate to say it but it isnt healthy for Any GPU. If you get a 450 watt say XFX or Corsair equivalent, they have a nice fully modular 550 watt or 500 watt hat would be perfect for your situation.

That is a Good PSU man, Glad you picked a Corsair one, most people try to go as cheap as they can and get a Fail box to power their system

I really think "saadssk94" you should listen to the advice of the good responders on here and invest in a better PSU. 2 years ago I upgraded my video card and NOT the generic, "no-name" model PSU and ended up frying most of my system (motherboard and yes, video card) when i added a BFG Geforce 9800GTX+ from a Geforce 8800GTS 320mb. Learned the hard way and now I have an Enermax 535w that I bought from a friend for only $40 CDN. And was it worth it. So good luck.

You still failed to tell us what your computer components are, so nobody can tell you anything without knowing that.

23A(Really actually less then that) on the 12V is not going to be sufficient.

Imageshack is blocked at work, but from the comments I'm guessing it was a Diablotek, Logisys, CM, or other junk PSU. Th_Redman has it right. It isn't worth the risk.

He or she got the post on 10 days ago. The computer is i3-2100, p8h61, 4gbram, and PSU is Thermal master by cooler master.

The PSU maybe can power up hd 6750 0r 6770, who know? right?

Am I to assume Saadssk94 and cin19 are the same person?

Do you really want to risk burning up your entire system to save $17?

it can power up, and does mean it can not burn or fire.

You can not play bf3 on max sitting for the $140, because you need both PSU and card to play on max. Check the link for bf3 performance.

someone will tell you which one you should get.

Ok, I'm at home now...I see it IS a CM and looks like one even worse than their Extreme Power series. The strongest GPU that may be safe to run on it is a HD6670, which requires no auxiliary power. Anything stronger, and it dies a fiery death and/or wanders sufficiently out of spec to damage other parts of your PC.
