Will this PSU support an old 8800gtx?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I built a computer for me to use temporarily until I can afford a high end system, then I'll be giving it to my mother.
My specs are-
Cooler Master Elite 342(came with a 400w CM Elite PSU)
Biostar n68s3+ microatx mobo
AMD Phenom II x3 720BE (at 3.2 but can set back to stock if it will interfere)
4gb Corsair ddr3
750gb WD Caviar
LG Bluray player
PCI Wifi card


Now I currently have a radeon 6450 in it but I would like to put my brothers old 8800gtx 768mb in it until I can afford a 7770 in a month or so.
Is this going to set my computer on fire or something? Should I even attempt it or just hold off awhile?
Here is the link to my psu with specs.

I would appreciate any and all feedback on this matter, before I get impatient and regret it.
Thanks!

Might not be a good idea. Think this needs at least 450 watt psu.

Well crap. Ok the 8800gtx is out then.
My brother has a new 6870 in the box he will sell to me for $70, would that work with my current setup?

Yep, it should do great.

LOL, I would just get a better PSU first.... But the 6870 should be okay.
