Can I get by with this PSU and GPU combo for a little bit?

Hey everyone, I'm going to get this GPU soon: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102984

Think I could get by with this PSU: http://www.thermaltakeusa.com/Product.aspx?C=1247&ID=1860 until I can get a little more money to buy either a Corsair/XFX/Rosewill PSU?

  1. Best answer
    Which CPU are you running? is it OC'd?

    The litepower 450w would be sufficient.
  2. Running an A6-3650 stock.

    If I need to buy a new PSU though, I'd rather get the one I have saved... it's 600w and from a pretty good brand from what I've seen.

    I'm guessing my current PSU can't squeeze by?

    EDIT: Just saw your edit. Yes! That means I can get my GPU installed and maxing out some games sooner! Thanks for the info, bartholomew!
  3. Yes, you can.

    Edit: I though you wanted a budget PSU for the 7850. :D

  5. While I'm at it, would this PSU be good in the future?

  6. I would say for a little bit. And by little bit I mean the time between when you install it and when you run load it up and that themaltake blows and takes your system with it.

    You realize you're of absolutely no help right?

    F*ck off if all you're here to do is be sarcastic.

    And YOU realize that's a 450W PSU that has 130 of its Watts from the +3.3V and +5V rails?

    That being said it turns out its an FPS made unit, instead of the junk themaltake usually sells, and can actually deliver that rating. so while you're running closer to the limits than you probably should its protection circuits probably actually work.
  9. I'm not sure how PSUs work so I'm not familiar with anything about "rails".

    And about your last statement, does that mean it will work then?

    Thanks for being helpful.

    yes, that's why at first I recommended a different PSU.
    But, this one turned out be better than "the junk themaltake usually sells" :D

    Yes saw that, and Hardocp. Jumped the gun a little. shocked to see a low wattage FPS unit from them. Don't like they combined the rail ratings, but I agree its probably ok
