Okey guys... Do the asus radeon hd 7750 run nicely on my 300W psu? The stores says its a 7770 but apparently its a 7750.. And will it be a big jump from my old geforce gt 430?

Of course it will.

Compare the specs if you`re not sure.

I don't see "300W recommended" in the link that you provided. It states that the GPU uses a maximum of 150W. (That's probably not true. 150W is the maximum for a PCI-E card with a 6 pin PCI-E auxiliary power connector; I think the 7770 is more like 100W.)

www.sapphiretech.com recommends at least 400W for their version, 500W for two cards in crossfire.

In a review at anandtech, with an I7-3960X (6 core Socket 2011 CPU, rated at 130W TDP), the most heavily loaded system drew 250W from the mains. The PSU had to be making 200W or more.

Maybe your system will run OK with a 300W PSU, if it's a good one. (Example of a good one: 25A available on the +12V rail. Not so good, 16A on the +12V rail.) I wouldn't care to chance it, if the system was mine.


Ok. Its first acually a 7750 and no. Its not a high quality psu. It makes a beeping sound and its not any fance cooling or colour. Youst a light grey thing made from china
