Is it enough?

dhruv_k_1307

I currently have a pc the which I am looking to upgrade. It can only have single slot gpus and I am getting a good deal on a rx6400. Currently my specs are:

i5-7500

4*4 ddr4 Ram 

1tb hdd

256gb ssd

 

The power supply is 280 watt and delivers 192 watt on the 12v rail. Will it enough for rx 6400

6400 pulls less than 75, since it doesnt require a 6 pin, it means it pulls its power from the board PCI-E slot, which maxes at 75w.

RX 6400 has a massive performance loss when running on PCIe3.0.

 

A 280w PSU with 192w at the 12v rail is a terrible unit. What's the brand and model?

I have installed and it works perfectly fine. It does not take more than 30-40 watts while playing games like Fortnite, cs2 and Valorant.

There are single slot 1050ti if you want a cheaper option, but 6GB GDDR6 compared to the 1050ti's 4GB if you want extra headroom and the longevity of driver support, then go with AMD, or a super cheap option is a 4gb rx 550 low profile. And by the way, is this a pre built PC? Like a Dell Optiplex? and I suggest upgrading your Ram also. Pretty sure its DDR4 and in my country, you can have a 8gb ddr4 ram at 12 dollars. A pretty cheap but huge upgrade.
