  1. What mobo? What power supply? We need a little more detail.
  2. Lenovo motherboard ,power supply 280 Max Ac
  3. Well I have no way of knowing what connectors the psu has, but I would not trust a generic 280W to run any type of dedicated gpu.
  4. Highly doubt 280 is anywhere enough.

  5. What is the purpose of that card? Don't expect to game with it. It's only use is to power a monitor.
  6. Well a 610 would only draw power from the motherboard. I believe a 610 needs a minimum of 300w. So no your PC isnt compatible with that card. Even the low end cards need at least 300w, so I would look into getting a new PSU before getting the video card.
  7. if I buy one which uses external power can I avoid buying a new psu???
  8. The external power it uses would be from the power supply unit, so yea, you would have to buy a new power supply unit nevertheless.
