I have recently seen that a cheap GT 620 will not hold much longer for any type of gaming. Even if i'm used to very low FPS (for example 7-15 in Farcry 3, 15-20 in saints row 3), I would like to be able to enjoy better graphics. I have recently seen the new GTX 650TI boost and I was extremely surprised since the price point is fairly low. But one problem remains, I only have 460 watts in my machine and have no intention of buying a new PSU now. (more because of the extra cost)
So here is my question, will I be able to run the card in my computer without having frequent BSODs because of overheating?
Here's what currently is in my machine:
i7-3770 (not overclocked, I don't think you can anyway)
GT 620 ( that would be removed)
A ssd (this one http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226318
I also have the original HDD in)
Here's the model if you need more info: Hp Pavilion HPE H8-1213c http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&tmp_geoLoc=true&docname=c03363679#N634
Finally, If it does work, what company should I go with? Zotac seems to have the lowest price point, but is there anything wrong etc.
And if it does not work, should I wait to see what AMD wil do to counter this, or should I save up more and get a whole new PSU and an other card like the GTX 670 or an equivalent on AMD's side.
Do note that i'm not interested in anything below the GTX 650ti boost, the increase in performance would be a bit too low for the money.
EDIT: I did search online to see if the card would work on my system, I found it should work with 450w, but I don't want to spend 200$ to realise I need to spend another 100$ to use the card.
Aaaand I don't understand anything past the processor and graphics card point in wattage calculators
EDIT2: Fixed my mistake where I wrote 550 instead of 650
