I have a 650W PSU - View: https://imgur.com/hXLjmkc
(most probably something made in China). So far, it runs my current setup just fine, the PSU itself runs for a seventh year. Because of the brand (and what I have read on other sites), I'm a little worried about if it will handle the card without problems.

I've opened a wattage calculator, (bet that's not 100% accurate, but still) this came out: https://outervision.com/b/eFinX5 - 354W on full load.

With my current setup, it eats 247W: https://outervision.com/b/wgMy4x

Should I wait and buy a decent PSU (I'm not best with my funds, right now), or install it into the current and not be worried?

Is this how you're testing how this power supply is functioning?




If not, you have no way of asserting that it's "handling" just fine. The GPU not being dead isn't a proper test of a power supply any more than your cardiologist tests your heart by checking if you're alive or not.
his point.

As I said before, I wouldn't be using something so low quality with a discrete GPU right now. It's your money and your risk, of course.
