    when it comes to a psu for a gpu, the most important thing to note is the amps on the 12v rail and not the watts. all psus should have a spec sheet either on the psu or on the spec sheet found online. I mean if it doesnt have a spec sheet, then I dont know what engineer built that cpu because engineers language at work is essentially drawings of the item they are producing and the spec sheet.

    ill gie you an example of what i mean

    You have a large water tank(the amount of watts) and you want to water your plants(the computer parts). the 12v amp rail is the faucet. if it isnt large enough, then water comes out of it slowly and you cannot water your plants(power the gpu in this case)

    yes it can fit the socket because all pci-e are backwards compatible. but with your data you are giving us right now, we aren't sure if your power supply can even handle the card. if it cant, you risk damaging computer parts or wasting money on a paper weight you cannot use.
  6. check what brand and model your power supply is and kindly tell us ;)

    a psu look like this



    and in psu there will be an label like this there will be written that how many amp it got in 12v rail and also psu brand name



    i think that 400w psu will run it but if it would be an bad quality one then maybe riskier tell us your psu details to us.:)
