I want to get a Dell Optiplex 7040 MT with a i7-6700, though the PSU is only 240 watts. is it able to handle a RX 560? (since i have one laying around) I've read at max load it produces is 172 watts thought I've also read that its max TDP is 80 watts. (don't exact know what that means) The 7040 itself stock takes 67 watts on moderate use. I want to ask people on here seeing how this forum has been quiet useful along my 5 years of messing with PC's before I've made an account. If there a better option for a pre-built under 400 bucks with a solid CPU and PSU I'd love to here it.

Thanks

There isn't that I know of , but you can change detail settings that change the workload for the card, which will affect its power usage.
Alright, thank you, the computers on its way. Also another question i have is if the GPU maxes out the PSU what will happen?
