Will my 300w PSU handle a Nvidia GTX 750 card?

Hi all,

I'm not too sure when it comes to computers so was wondering if you could help me out.

My dad has bought me an ASUS M31AD computer for Christmas so I can play The Sims 4 but the graphics card is not what I expected as I originally wanted an ACER Aspire G3-605 which has a Nvidia GTX 745 card.

I was wondering if I could just buy a Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 card and put it into the ASUS M31AD instead of having the hassle to exchange the computer.

The ASUS computer specs are here: click here

It uses a Bespoke Intel H81 motherboard and has a 300w PSU

Many thanks if you could help me out

Ben

You'll need min 400W for the GTX750 that could mean up the PSU from 300 to 400W.

Don't think you can buy a GTX745, it's a dedicated low power consumption OEM card made for PC manufacturers I think.

Ah ok thanks! My dad has actually exchanged the computer to the ACER Aspire one so I'm happy!

Cheers for your help though

Ben
