Stock 250PSU enough? EVGA GeForce GTX 750Ti SC 2GB

My sister's PC is an HP built PC with just a 250w PSU. My nephew has gotten into PC gaming.

I'm looking for a low voltage graphics card that can perform the best it can considering the situation. It's a fairly small mid-tower PC.

The card that has sparked my interest is EVGA GeForce GTX 750Ti SC 2GB https://pcpartpicker.com/product/NMqdnQ/evga-video-card-02gp43753kr

Given it's size and power TDP it seems that it would be a good fit.

Any thoughts? Thanks!

I've seen some conflicting reviews about the power requirement. The post 300W minimum from NewEgg's site. Several people have upgraded their PSU's but few I've seen have ran it with a 220W or so.

Just goofing around I had added this card to a cheap gamer PC build that is from one of the main guides and just changed the graphics to this. The total power was listed as 182W. So it got me questioning if 250W would actually be enough in reality. http://pcpartpicker.com/list/9VbZQV

the pc your sister has will consume more under load. That psu will just be enough for the system so i don't think it will work under load when you add a gpu to it.

Thanks, I'm gonna see what used PSUs I have from my past PCs. If for some reason they won't fit/work they seem to be cheap enough. Just saw Corsair 500W for $30 with rebate this morning.

Appreciate the feedback guys!

I've changed my mind in recent news. The GTX 1050 appears to be the winner now for the $$.

I looked through my old PCs. The first PC I ever bought was a custom built one years ago and it had a standard ATX 350W in it. I extracted it from the build. I'm gonna test it out over this weekend.

Bestec Model: ATX-250-12Z

Output: 250W MAX

In that case if the psu is rated at 250W peak output (max) I wouldnt put in the 750ti. If it was 250W continuous output then i would consider it but as the psu is 250W max you may not have enough power for your pc.
