No, you need at least 450W (as listed by Nvidia) and 550W to be sure. Also, depending on the manufacturer, 30-38 amps on the +12v rail. My card even reaches 44 amps under load and has a listed minimum requirement of 38A.

EDIT:
This is what I'm using, works perfectly:

OP any good quality 450 watt PSU will run any single card "rule of thumb" and your situation and card is no different I recommend this one as the above PSU although great is needlessly on the expensive side therefor may I recommend you this - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

That listed 38 amp requirement is for the whole system, not just the graphics card.

Nah, I think it's just for the card, it's listed alongside the RAM, OS and mobo requirements.

I know they are cause they have to overestimate for the noobs that do not want to understand and as well low quality PSUs that do not out put there as adversed Amps and volts and watts ect like OPs ELcheapo PSU as advertised 400 watts but only 348 watts on the +12v rail.

that means i have to look for gtx 550ti. Can gtx 550ti max out every game at 1280x1024?
I will be happy with 30-40 fps.

Absolutely correct. The card itself can't pull more than 18A on its own.

PCIe slot- 6A max
PCIe power plug A- 6A max
PCIe power plug B- 6A max

You are better off going with a Radeon card like the 6850/6870

LOL there is really no many games that even use Nvidia Physx and at the low end where you are looking at you will not have the power to run them to begin with. Nvidia Physx is nothing more than a gimmick and cheap trick.

Honestly dude just go with the 6850 cause it will most likely run on that PSU you already have and the 6850 will have lots of performance for you and it will empress of that I am positive. Look at this $140 bucks and comes with a game - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I have heard that amd drivers are not stable. is it true? If its not true then i will surely go for 6850hd. by the way thanks for your help.

Bollocks Radeon would not have made it to the top if they had driver problems.

Actually, some people have complained about the latest drivers causing problems with the 7xxx series. Dunno if that applies for 6xxx as well, but no one has said anything about that. Even if you do have problems, you can always install an older version...

A Radeon HD 7850 will definitely work with Seasonic 400W (OEM) (SS-401HT) power supply unit and have better performance than any GeForce GTX 560, Radeon HD 6870 or Radeon HD 6850 but you'll have to decide whether or not it's within your budget range and market availability.

For a system using a reference clocked single Radeon HD 7850 graphics card AMD specifies a minimum of a 500 Watt or greater power supply. The power supply should also have a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 24 Amps or greater and have at least one 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connector.

For a system using a single GeForce GTX 560 graphics card NVIDIA specifies a minimum of a 450 Watt or greater power supply that has a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 24 Amps or greater and that has at least two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors. A reference design card will draw more than 17 Amps when running a GPU stress testing utility like FurMark or OCCT GPU:3D and will exceed the SS-401HT's capability to properly power the rest of the system components.

For a system using a single Radeon HD 6870 graphics card AMD specifies a minimum of a 500 Watt or greater power supply. The power supply should also have a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 30 Amps or greater and have at least two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors. A reference design card will draw more than 14 Amps when running a GPU stress testing utility like FurMark or OCCT GPU:3D and will exceed the SS-401HT's capability to properly power the rest of the system components.

For a system using a single Radeon HD 6850 graphics card AMD specifies a minimum of a 500 Watt or greater power supply. The power supply should also have a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 24 Amps or greater and have at least one 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connector.

Total Power Supply Wattage is NOT the crucial factor in power supply selection!!! Total Continuous Amperage Available on the +12V Rail(s) is the most important factor.

The Seasonic 400W (OEM) (SS-401HT), with its combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 29 Amps and with one 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors, is sufficient to power your system configuration with a single Radeon HD 7850 or a single Radeon HD 6850.
