Can My Power Supply Handle This Graphics Card?

Hello,
I have a 500w Cit branded power supply
I was wondering if it can handle the ATI HD 6870 1GB
The specs of my PC are AMD bulldozer 3.6ghz quad core
4GB RAM
ATI HD 5450
Here is a link to the card http://www.amazon.co.uk/XFX-Radeon-HD-687A-ZHFC-Graphics-Memory/dp/B005C31F2M/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1356312950&sr=8-2
plan on getting it as a late christmas present,
Thanks

  1. Whatever says:

    Maybe, depends on the actual quality of your PSU.
    I wouldn’t count on it, but I can’t rule it out.

    That card uses 151w so you’ll probably get away with it, be pushing it though, power supplies are cheap enough these days so if you get any system instability consider a new PSU.
