  2. Best answer
    first off, you only have a 250w psu, good GPU's require more power.
    550w should be enough for most. a 5450 is low.

    depending on your budget, case size and psu, i would start with at least a 7770. higher is better but more expensive and would certainly require you to get a better psu
  3. ok, thank you sir

    i pgrade 450w psu, i have same problem

    i will try 550w
