Powercolor hd 7770 ghz edition with 250w

i am about to receive a hd 7770 in the next few days and i would like to see if this computer will work on it. the main problem i believe is the power supply which is quite bad.
cpu:amd phenom 2 x4 840T(OEM)
6gb of ddr3 ram
psu:bestec 250w
i have another psu from a different computer that broke a while ago and it was the antec basiq 430w which i will use if the bestec cant support the watts. i have ran a 8500gt on the 250w and it was fine. how will it do on this psu?

    Hi - Sn is right, the bestec 250 not enough. Replace the bestec with the Antec
    bp430, it is sufficient for that system.
