Need help determining if my PSU Can handle a 5750

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
You see... I have a Generic 400 Watt PSU With 28Amps.
Will it or will it not work efficiently with a 5750?
Other specs.
AMD Phenom II X4 920 (No OC)
4GB DDR2-6400 2X2 RAM
DVD/CD ROM Combo.
Single SATA HDD 7200Rpm.
And an MSI K9N6PGM2-V Mobo.

AMD recommends a 450W PSU and that takes into account all the bad ones. A 400W generic PSU will probably not deliver its rated wattage. I'd say it will probably work, but why risk it tbh?

It should work fine as long as you don't OC anything and refrain from running benches.

yeah chances are it would be ok if you keep running everything at stock...if you start having issues pick up a slightly higher wattage cheapo PSU. keep an eye out...think i saw a decent brand semi modular 550 psu the other day for $30 or something. Pretty easy to score deals on sub 600 watt psu's
