My PSU will run MSI 1050GTX 2G OC 2GB GPU???

Hi I have a Intex PSU earlier with power ratings as --

+5V +12V +3.3V -12V +5VSB
29A 18A 30A 0.5A 2A

it used to run a GT610 normally earlier, now i upgraded to a GTX1050 2GB my question is my PSU will take the load of new GPU normally? as its used to take with old one.

MY system specs are -

Intel core i5 3450 Processor
Gigabyte H61M-S1 Motherboard
Corsair Vengeance 4GB DDR3 Ram X1
Seagate 5900 RPM Hard Disk
A 80mm LED fan for cooling purpose
GTX 1050 2gb GPU

I used the power calculater here but it shows the power distribution in each rail lower than the maximum in my PSU rating.(It took CPU as i5 7400 bcos it dnt hv i5 3450)

  1. The biggest problem you have here is trusting that the power ratings on the PSU are actually accurate. Cheap PSU's often do not deliver what is on the case.
    https://books.google.ca/books?id=v1iTDAAAQBAJ&pg=SA5-PA41&lpg=SA5-PA41&dq=overstated+psu+wattage+claims&source=bl&ots=mLmGoM1WZf&sig=pRmXNHH6AHgbBnZDEp2bzKJv6v8&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjFuJHDoMXTAhUI7oMKHe1dDOoQ6AEIJDAB#v=onepage&q=overstated%20psu%20wattage%20claims&f=false

    And this is a cheap one.

    If you trust what is on the case just taking the +12V amperage you get a 18A*12V = 216W PSU. The +12V rail is what powers the major components.

    The GT610 is a 29W GPU

    The GTX 1050 is a 75W GPU

    My guess is that if you try this you have a fire hazard (no joke).
