AMD list a 450W as a minimum requirement. For these 3 months, have you had any artifacts of shut-downs? Also, how many amps do you have on the +12V rail? (you can check that by opening the case, the PSU has a label on the side)

Fifa 12 is enough to make your PC crash if the PSU is weak. Looks like it's holding up. Can you still post the PSU specs or at least the model?

OK, so what you have there is a 450W PSU. I couldn't find exact specs for it, but if it's held its ground for three months it should be fine. However, it's a cheapo PSU. To be absolutely sure you'll need 500W and more, but those cost $50-70 (rs. 3000-4000). It's not that much and if you can spend $60 on this for example:

then you'll be sure you won't have to spend $150 later for a new GPU.

Yes, that is where I checked. Some other sites also. And I wrote what info I got from them. Do you have a set budget? Can you spend any money at all right now?

Yes, do that. If you are going to only play fifa, you won't need a more powerful GPU, so now you only need to worry about the PSU to support it.

As I said, it's doing very well so far since you haven't had any shut-downs or artifacts. No need to cahnge it now. But if you see any of the symptoms of a failing PSU- overheating, shut-downs or artifacts, change it immediately! Do not wait as it will damage your GPU.

No, that means that your CPU/GPU can't process everything that's going on right at that moment. Lowering the settings will fix that, no need to worry.

It has the same requirements as BF3, so a bit lower settings should do it.
