I would like to do casual gaming as well, did some google and found that in the real tiime this card consumes less power around 85W... and my cpu takes around 65 W.. so 150.. W total... Do you agree with this?
you need 10 watts for your hard drive, 8 watts for each stick om memory, 7 watts for the chipset; you are talking about ~180 watts inder full stress. thats why i mentioned the benchmarking. the gaming is if the game stresses the cpu along with the gpu.
Oh I see, lThanks.. .. was thinking to upgrade my PSU, however could not find the low profile power adapter with 400-450 watts for MI-008? do you know any? it should be 2.5" in height.. thanks

FSP Group FSP450-60GHS(85)-R 450W Micro ATX12V 80 PLUS BRONZE $64.99
i believe that will be the right size, looks like the same as what is in your case now. pickings are slim in the ITX and microATX sizes. i am not familiar with FSP like seasonic, corsair, antec . .ect.
this does give you a 6 pin and 8 pin PCI power connectors. you could get a card that uses either for 150 and 225 watts max but not both which would be a 300 watt card.
