Hi - That GPU will run on 460w (some mfg rec 400w, some don't), the issue is:
what caused your last card to get "fried"? Without further details, I would suspect the PSU.
Generally, the PSU's you get in prebuilt systems is not very good, and myself personally
would look to replace the PSU with a quality brand/model.

I don't know what quality PSU HP puts into the PC you have. Hopefully, someone who does know
will see this thread.

I would never run an overclocked card on a weak PSU as you will generally hurt something. Just spend a little bit to get a 500w PSU from corsair, seasonic or enermax.

Brb going to open up my PC. @toyftw I honestly don't know what caused the graphics card to go out, because the first time the GFX card went it went under warranty and I got it replaced (I had a 9800GT and the card that went now was a HD4850 ).

Ah, 2 GPU's have blown. You need to find out why before you put another one in.

I still suspect the PSU, but can't 100% sure on that. There's a chance
it's sumthing else.

In any event, you should upgrade that PSU.

Thanks for the tips! I opened the case and the PSU was made by a company called Delta Electronics. My HP laptop has a power adapter from the same company ( I'm not a fan of HP, actually I kind of hate them ). When my GPU went out it showed weird colors on the screen and when I rebooted I saw the BIOS screen was f**** up. The cards vent runs just fine, at a good speed and its not noisy. Is there anything else that could've ruined the card?

Hi Karl - yes - there could be other reasons(short circuit(s) on mobo) for frying your GPU's,
but I'm not tech-savvy enough to tell you how to find another cause.

Hopefully, someone that is techie or geeky enough will see this and help.

You could also post this in the Graphics Card forum, possibly there are
people there to help as well.

Oh - Delta is an OEM, and makes a lot of Antec's better PSU's. However, they will
make based upon the specs and/or design of the brand contracting the production.
In this case HP.

Heat can kill them on older cards if the case isn't so good.

The temps were not so bad actually, i've gotten around 30-40 on idle and 60-70 while playing games like BF3 and GTA 4. Is it possible to fit a different PSU in that case? Is Fortron a decent company or should I look at brands like OCZ, Gigabyte and Corsair?
I found a 750W PSU for a suitable price nearby by Fortron.

PS! Off-Topic, I know, but would a GTX 560 ( which seems pretty huge on the picture ) fit into that case? As I mentioned before, I had a HD4850 and a 9800GT in the same case, so will it fit or should I look for something smaller?

Hi - the gtx560 will fit in the case, the hd4850 might actually be a little longer(9.0" vs 8.25"), at least on the models
I checked, so should not be an issue. Worst thing that could happen is you'd have to move
you hdd up or down(I had to with mine,but my card was 10.25"L), which you shouldn't have to do as you already had
the 4850 in that slot.

if i was you, i wouldnt go cheap on the psu (coolermaster, ocz, corsair make some quality ones). whichever one you get should at least be 80 plus certified, but thats my opinion.

Coolermaster generally offers "CRAP" PSU's (only a few silent pro models are good):
