Hello,

it should work with that psu, it is very low power card. It isn't good for gaming however. (unless you like solitaire and freecell)

Gt210 should work fine under that Psu. But it's weak card and is not suitable for any "cool" games like - Bf3, mw3, skyrim...
But it would be nice if you could specify what hides under "gaming" for you.
Any way you could aim for Gt220, it's still low-end, not very far more costly(+~10-20$), but it's far more better then Gt210.

Not for newer games. Get an HD 6670 or and HD 6570. I had the HD 5570 and was able to play BF3, Skyrim, and MW3 at reasonable settings. I have heard that all the cards I mentioned works on a PSU above 250W even though the requirements say otherwise.

No it is not. It is too weak to play new games, and it is too new to play ancient games (conflict with drivers and GPU architecture).

It made several games to go choppy on my good computer, they run well with better GPU. Worse! It made several ancient GOG games go choppy and with problems on Vista and on newer drivers, until i installed old XP with oldest compatible drivers.

So, expect problems.

Also, you won't get much of help in forums, no matter whatever problems you have with this card you get stamp answer: "crappy card, buy new"
