I am getting a geforce gts 250 graphics card but it requires a 450W PSU. I have only a 420W PSU. Will I be ok with this?

Depand if this 420 PSU is a generic or good brand. ( Corsair and other )

If not, i would suggest going for a 520W corsair PSU or OCZ, PC P&C, Antec, TT. KNOW good brand but its not because its a KNOW brand that its good ... I just replaced a BFG 650 watts that blowed cause of a dead FAN ...
