im not planning this to upgrade any more with pentium D and geforce 210 im happy with it, im saving money for better build maybe after a year, this pc is only temporary for me to play online games without setting max graphics (im not a hardcore gamer just a casual one). so im asking if i could atleast run this components without having issue after all i got a true rated 300watt psu ang the minimum i checked is 200 but recomended is 250.

It's kind of like asking how long a car engine will last for when you are running it at 5000+RPM constantly, it may last a while it may not, depends who built the engine. What brand is your PSU? I get a feeling it is not a quality branded one.

I know you are on a budget but I don't want to be responsible for you wrecking your PC.

Nobody on here can say if it will run without a problem, you have been advised to get a better PSU and that is that. If you don't want to then the risk is on your shoulders my friend.

i have a true rated 300watts psu, but hd 5450 needs atleast 400watts in psu. is it still ok to run the graphic card in that system i dont know about the amps.

other spec
pentium D 945
2gb ddr2 ram
intel mobo
The spec for that GPU is 300W total, not 400 W, don't know where you got that. That includes the CPU etc. The maximum total design power for that card is about 20 watts. Add to that about 180 watts maximum for the rest of your system and you fall way below 300W.

You will be fine with that PSU and graphics card as long as it actually provides 300W with no issues.

Are you kidding me? the HD 5450 does not even consume more than 30w at full load, 300w is more than enough except if you upgrade to HD 5670.

My old PC that had HD 5450 with 250w ran fine
