I agree, I only needed 520w, but I went on the safe side and got a 750w

Yes, PSU not always are able to supply the power they spec all of the time and specially in cases like his that the upgrade is in an existing build with a used PSU that maybe is giving a less power anyway due to use (this is more normal than people think). And a lot of staff than can drew more power than is supposed to do

Thats why also in the officials specs for this 6450 2Gb says that the recommended is a 400w supply.

(PS: sorry for my bad english, it is not my "mother tongue" as rammstein would say)
