Do my power supply support this graphics card?

My PSU is Edvan CM-ATX-450W and I don't know wheter it can support my graphics card. I'm planning to buy a MSI N610GT ( http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-

gpus/geforce-gt-610/specifications ) for my PC

My system spec:

MSI G31TM-P31 motherboard ( http://www.msi.com/product/mb/G31TM-P31.html#/?div=Detail )

Pentium Dual Core E5400 @ 2.70 GHz

Windows 7 Ultimate (32-bit)

2 gb memory ram

This is exactly what is written on my PSU:

Edvan CM-ATX-450W
AC I/P 230V ; 4A

DC O/P +3.3V ; 20A (max 25 A), +5V ; 30A (max 32A) , +12V ; 16A (max 20A), -12V ; 10A, -5Vsb ; 2.0A

More about power supply support graphics card
  1. i don't think so the CM-ATX-450W can rated 350W ... The box for the GT 610 listed a 300W PSU as minimum .. it can be used ... but your PSu is crap will better get good PSU and pure watt.
    also your board PCIE X16 ver1 and GT 610 is 2.0 it will loss performance !
  2. So which graphics card is more suitable for me now? Price is around like the GT610
  3. It will support the card without any problems. That card consumes no more power than a hard drive.
  4. ^ but I'm wondering that my PSU doesn't have the cable to connect the graphics card to my PSU since it seems like doesn't have a PCIE 6-pin cable is it?
  5. Best answer
    GT 610 doesn't need that cable.
  6. How do the graphics card run if there is no power supply? Sorry for asking stupid question...
  7. Everything gets damaged...
  8. If there is no power supply in the component, nothing will happen when you press the button. Power supply for the computer is like petrol for a car.

    But you said this GT 610 doesn't need a PCI-E 6pin cable to be connected to power supply? So how to the graphics card connected to power supply?
  10. It's powered through the PCIE X16 slot.

    So if the card is installed on the PCIE x16 slot it doesn't need any cables to be connected to PSU any more?
  12. Exactly. When I said it won't turn on, I meant it will happen if you take the power supply out of PC.
