Checking for a friend. She's switching out the card from her old PC to her current one. Just want to make sure she doesn't fry anything. :o

I know ATI SAYS it requires a 450 watt PSU, but I know they tend to inflate those numbers, usually.

It depends on your setup. What are the specs and what is the brand and model of the PSU?

Don't know. It's a pre-built HP. I do know she currently has a GT 630 in it, which also "requires" a 450w PSU.

Edit: She has 8gb RAM and an i7-3770, if that helps.

I'm fairly certain that 460Watt PSU is terrible. HP tends to cramp horrible quality hardware in their PCs. If you're able to, check what the PSU model and brand is to be sure.

Theoretically, if the PSU was a PSU that actually outputs around 460Watts, then yes, that would be more than enough for that setup with the HD5770. But I wouldn't get the GPU unless you're sure what the PSU is so that you may eventually replace that too.

The GT630 is a low-end card btw which requires little power even on load.

5770's sip power. Even with a crappy PSU you'll be fine. I had a 5770 on an even lower wattage prebuilt PSU and it was fine. I wouldn't worry about it, if it blows up it was bound to go sooner or later.

Alright, thanks. She's trying it now, but it's running way too hot, for some reason. She turned on FFXIV and it jumped up to 104c.
