It is a good card and will run most things well up to a resolution of 1080P. It will run on a system with quality PSU around 400watts for example it will run fine on Antec EA380 or Corsair CX430.

it's a good mid range gaming card it will play all current games on mid settings for a PSU this will work fine and give you plenty OC room and breathing room
