Is my PSU going to support 7750

My System configs are as follow:
Intel i3 2120
Asus P8H61-M motherboard
4GB DDR3 RAM
500 GB WD Cavier Blue
DVD RW Drive
LG E1940 Monitor with 1360X768 max resolution.
PSU Zebronics 450W (+12V@15A)

I'm not a hardcore gamer so I'm thinking about buying HD7750. The only thing I worried about my PSU.

On doing a little research I found that I have to calculate my PSU power requirement like this:

CPU max power req. 65W
GPU's max power req. 55W (I'm not sure about this)

Total power req. 120...devide that by 12

So I need 10A + 5A i.e. total 15A minimum on 12V rail which I have on my PSU

but I'm not so sure about this..so please help..

should I upgrade my PSU or will it work?

If I should then which PSU you would suggest?

I'd be very wary about putting anything more in that system with that PSU, 12V@15A isn't even close to the claimed rated power output. If you're looking to buy a new PSU, check out Seasonic or the Rosewill Capstone/Fortress series.

The HD 7750 only draws about 50 watts when gaming, so in theory that PSU wouldn't even feel it.

Forget the seasonic its garbage. Get a Corsair CX500 builder series, and it will never fail you.

And don't be afraid of the DOA reviews, its just bad luck I've had one of these in a system for 3 years now and it is a working horse of massive proportions.

It looks like garbage, it doesn't even have sleeved cables. It may perform well, but the Corsair is still a better buy in my book, one solid 12V rail and 80 plus.

Ok looks like I have no choice but to buy that Corsair 430W in any case if I want to add graphic card.

I can get MSI 6770 for much cheaper rate than 7750. So should I buy 6770 or stick to 7750
6770 is available at 6200 Rs while 7750 is at 7500 Rs.
So is the difference worth it?


and one more question...how am I going to fit that Corsair in my cabinet? That PSU fan is going to blow hot air right onto CPU fan.

Do I have to buy a cabinet fan for that?

It won't blow hot air in, it is the intake fan, that blows hot air out the back of the PSU. I would go with the HD 7750, newer tech plus it can be overclocked from 800 to 880/900 mhz safely! And it uses less power, performance wise the HD 6770 is just a tiny bit faster, and you would never actually see the difference in real world gaming.

Quite frankly I don't care. My mobo from ASUS was made in China, it is still a A+ class motherboard. So even if the Corsair CX models are made in China that doesn't make them inferior as long as the components are solid.

Most of the high end Corsair units are made by Seasonic :) .

Exactly. That "garbage" PSU is 80+ bronze rated as well, it's a fine PSU if you don't need huge amps. It's probably twice as powerful as that so-called 450W PSU from Zebronics.

what kind of noob non sense are you talking about Corsair is a well known supplier of PSU's with top notch ratings with good value. The models made by Seasonic tend to be very reliable the psu your recommending is barley acceptable as not crap get your facts straight! Corsair doesn't build any of it's PSU.

I don't know the prices for other PSUs in your area, so I'll just go by the two you linked before; the CX 430 V2 is slightly weaker (fewer amps on 12V rail(s)) but IMO looks better. Pick whichever you prefer, they'll both work well with your system.

Hard to say. It might work, it might shut down, or it might break something. That's how it is with a PSU from an unreliable brand.

Well if SeaSonic built the CX500, then why is it barely acceptable since you hold SeaSonic in such high regard?

For the CX500 as well as the CX430, Corsair switched from Seasonic to CWT, a manufacturer that isn't as highly regarded. They also rated those PSUs at 30 degrees C, which is a bit low and therefore their numbers are a bit optimistic.

Not knowing if SeaSonic makes Corsair PSUs does hardly qualify me as someone who doesn't know anything!? I may have only built systems for 8 years, but just from looking at the SeaSonic recommended it looks like OEM material, now granted its 80 bronze, but I would rather go with one single powerful 12V rail than having two in a 400Watt PSU no matter the brand. As for recommending the Corsair, a system I built for my sister 3 years ago runs with the CX500 and it runs silent, efficient has no voltage fluctuation and is overall rock solid to this day that is why I recommended it.

From personal experience I can vouch for the CX500, for 3 years it has worked flawlessly in my sister's machine, it is not suited for hardcore rigs, but looking at OP's rig then the CX get's a recommendation from me.

Ok I'm buying Corsair 430CX...:) 

One final question from me:

When I install my graphic card do I have to disable onboard graphic card from BIOS or BIOS will automatically detect 7750 and disable onboard graphic card?

Well Corsair PSU is good( most of them are mid and high end) but they don't make PSU. Seasonic , they do make PSU from entry level psu to high end( some of them might look ugly).

Top PSU maker: Seasonic, Enermax

PS: Corsair is only Designer( they don't make PSU). If you say Seasonic is garbage , Corsair PSU is also garbage because Seasonic make PSU for Corsair.

Your chipset doesn't let you disable onboard, and it will automatically detect the hd 7750. Just plug in HD 7750 in the computer, plug the monitor to the new HD 7750 and turn it on. And you're done :) .
