So, I recently bought a 450 watt psu but my little devil brother switched the psu from 220V to 110V which made it burn. I have my old 250 watt power supply and I am wondering whether I can run my rx 550 card on it. My system specs are as follows:

Intel Core i5 1st gen processor
1st gen mobo motherboard
8 gb ddr3 ram (4 sticks each of 2gb)
500 gb hdd
amd rx 550 4gb (asus)
15 inch lcd display
and a mouse & keyboard for sure

I know it's a low-end pc but I'm happy with it

AMD lists the typical board power as 50W. So as long as you get a card that has no PCIe power connectors, it should be fine.

(Note they also say the minimum PSU requirement is 400W, but this tends to be an overestimate to cover all bases)

Yes, the RX 550 gets all the power (50-65W) from the PCIe slot (75W), so it should run with a reliable 250W PSU.

Can you find the model number of the 250 watt PSU and list it here? We want to make sure it's not dumpster fire grade junk before you use it...again. Also, how old is it?

hey there! Thank you for responding. Here's what I found about the power supply using the sticker attached on it:

Delta Electronics
Model No: DPS-250-22 D
I bought it 2 years ago but it says it was manufactured in 2009 Lmao
Maximum output: 250 W

Can't find this model on their products page:

maybe it's a discontinued version :(

Well, a pic of the label shows 15 amps on the +12volt which is 15A x 12V = 180 watts. I really don't recommend using this for any discreet GPU at all.

Well i have the same question
I too have a 250 W dell power supply
It says +12 volts and 17.8 A
Can i run RX 550 4GB ?

17.8 x 12 = 213 watts. RX550 is a 65 watt card. Depends on what CPU you have. If the CPU power is about the same as the GPU it may work but total system power would be too close to the max output of the power supply and it may shutdown. Probably not a great idea. The power supply is just not made for the job you want it to do.

Thanks for your kind reply.
