OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64
CPU: AMD Athlon 7750 x2
GPU: Nvidia GeForce 9500gt
HDD: Seagate 1TB
I am planning to upgrade my graphics card and buy a Nvidia GTX 650. On their site I saw it needs a 400W power supply. I currently have a 450W power supply. Do I need to change the PSU or will it suffice for the new card?
Thanks in advance.
geforce GTX650 (not ti) TDP is ~65W
so its around same power consumption.
You dont need to change power supply if one you have now works.
ofcourse if you have spare money go overboard and buy 500-600W psu
but in reality your pc on load will consume around 300W thats it..
Good 400W psu will work. I have GTX650 factory OC and it worked with 400W medium quality psu no problem.

Yes, that PSU has the needed connectors for your card. Although it has 80% efficiency i bet it's good for your needs, and the card will run with no problem
here are the detailed specs of the Corsair, that you will be buying,
