As far as I can tell the Eurocase is an obsolete junk pile that would optimistically do 300W on a good day, though probably not in spec.
Oh Phaedrus, why you so scandalous?

If its one like this, then no.




Reason is, while 400w is enough, cheaper power supplies like this are all too often incapable of actually being able to run that amount even in short bursts. I wouldn't put anything over about 200w on that. (Well, i suppose you could run that pc on it, but I wouldn't.)

Go for a higher quality unit, a decent one will be able to run at that amount all day, maybe even a bit beyond in some cases for a little while. Also cheap psus are can blow, even during relatively normal use, a good one will not.

A quality 300w should be perfect for this pc, but go for at least 350 to provide some headroom for upgrading and ageing on the capacitors.

The graphics card will spend a lot of time waiting for the processor to send data, so the performance doesn't reflect its true potential.

Back to the power supply...it's amazing how many people still buy $15 PSUs because they have 480W or whatever on the label.

That thread reveals cheap construction inside the Eurocase, quite frankly I wouldn't trust it with your PC. The gentleman posting actually decided to recap the entire unit because it was that bad (and to be honest, the Samxon replacements are pretty average too).

This looks good and should leave you room for future upgrades.

So if I buy the graphics card and leave this PSU means I can damage the card, motherboard, cpu etc?

This, I've had seasonics kill parts before too though.. It's a possibility with all power supplies, except the good ones actually do their rated wattage and have safety protections which help prevent damage.
