Default Graphics Cards

Again I AM Still Trying to get a new graphics card so my choice was the palit geforce 210 that i can run but i want to know if i can run the AMD Radeon HD5450 1Gb It Needs A 400W PSU.
I Have A 400W PSU
with dual rail..
+12v1 is 10A
+12v2 is 14A

I Have A Supported PCI-E Place In The Motherboard to put it in.

So Can i Run The AMD Radeon HD5450 1Gb or i will get the PALIT Geforce 210?

Default Re: Graphics Cards

Why do you make a new thread each time you have a question about the same thing you asked in the last thread?
Each time you post in a thread including one of your own, it gets bumped up so people will see it and respond if so moved.

To answer your question the 400watts is for a bare bones system with a vid card in it.
Keep in mind you have other devices nursing off that same power supply. Figure in:
Mother board
Hard drive(s)
Optical drive
Lights (If you have them)
And whatever other power consuming goodies you may have

My rule of thumb is if the system is requiring x amount of watts to function and I want to add something else, I add 200watts to the total and buy accordingly.
