Could my pc with only 250w psu run a GeForce 750 ti or 730 ti

Could my pc with only 250w psu run Geforce 750ti or 730 ti because I'm overrunning my intergrated gpu my specs are Amd a10 7860k 8gb ram 2tb hard drive and intergrated Radeon r7 graphics (which I'm abandoning)

More about 250w psu run geforce 750 730
  1. Best answer
    Possibly.

    A 7860K is a 65W CPU and a 750TI being 60W.... with the balance of your components (RAM, HDDs, Motherboard etc) adding a theoretical max of somewhere in the region of 90W.

    That puts the total a little over 200W, theoretical max. A setup is unlikely to ever be pulling close to that (I'd expect yours, even with the GPU to top out at 175W).

    If it's a quality 250W and is actually capable of 250W continuous (oposed to peak power), it should have no problem.
    That being said, I'm not aware of a 'quality' 250W PSU in all honesty.

    I'd suspect you *should* be fine, but the only way to know for sure is to try it
  2. Well you have the APU. I'd recommend you purchase a R7 250 for dual graphics along with the APU. Uses very little power and gets better performance than the GTX 730 Ti. Did i mention it'll be very cheap also?
    R7 250-

    Best option here for you. Expect to see GTX 750 Ti or R7 260X Performance. But hey you already have the APU so why not put it to use? Good Luck!

  4. Thanks and If it did work how much frame Would I get on games like gta Overwatch?
  5. You should expect settings mixed matched around High settings with frames anywhere from the 60's to 30's
  6. A graphics card which does not need an aux 6 pin pcie power lead will run off of the pcie x16 slot power.
    That is a max of 75w from the slot.
    To date, the strongest such card was the GTX750ti.
    But, the upcoming GTX1050 and GTX1050ti look to be stronger with even less power requirements.

  8. Thanks how much frames will I get now with my intergrated graphics
  9. I'd expect 720P resolution and Lowest settings. I'd highly recommend you get the R7 250 and use dual graphics. You'll see GTX 750 Ti performance or better with no power connector needed and save money.

    Depends which one of us you were responding to.

    A 750TI looks like it'll do 60FPS on epic (at 1080p) in Overwatch (although the A10 might limit that a little)

    With GTAV, a mix of ~highish settings looks to run ~30FPS (again though, the A10 will probably reduce that)

  13. Could I also fit the graphics card in 1 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16
    1x PCI
  14. Yes if your motherboard has a PCI Express 2.0/3.0 Slot then your in fine shape!
  15. With my intergrated graphics how do I install the r7 250 I'm rubbish with computers

  17. You should see a pc slot once you take the side panel off of your computer. The PCI slot is located on the motherboard, similiar to the picture here- http://www.playtool.com/pages/vidslots/mballslots.jpg
    Anyways you then insert the GPU into the slot and install it. Once your finished i recommend you install DDU, Link here- www.guru3d.com/files-details/display-driver-uninstaller-download.html
    Install that software once the GPU is installed and boot the system into safe mode( The program will prompt you to boot the computer into safe mode) Select Yes. Uninstall both AMD and Nvidia drivers. Then go to AMDS latest website and pick up their drivers.
    http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/desktop?os=Windows+10+-+32
    However make sure you purchase the R7 250 as the R7 250X is not supported with this CPU.....
    Best of luck!

  19. Hey is my pc now with the intergrated graphics better than this Dell Inspiron 15-5000 AMD A10 Processor, 8Gb RAM, 1Tb Hard Drive, 15.6 Inch Laptop With AMD 2Gb Dedicated Radeon Graphics?
  20. No .... I would not even consider this an upgrade at all

  22. What about a Lenovo Ideapad 100 Intel® Core™ I5 Processor 8Gb RAM 1Tb Hard Drive 15.6 Inch Laptop if I install a graphics card
