Re: Need Help Upgrading Son's Computer

said by KCrimson:

I think he's going to try one of those graphics cards. How close to the danger zone are we talking - does he really need to first purchase that power meter?

I think you're good. The PC has a 250w PSU, and you are likely drawing well under 100w, so adding a GPU with a max TDP of 50-60w is fine.

But as Fizzy suggested, if you want to verify it, open up the computer and post a picture of the label on the PSU.
If we lose this freedom of ours, history will record with the greatest astonishment, those who had the most to lose, did the least to prevent its happening.
