well, as long as it has 1x6pin and 1x8pin connector it will be able to run it but as it says on the package "recomended power supply 750 watts" so.. other components of your rig should not consume more than 250 wats.

well, it says that it consumes 275w but actually it can consume up to 300 when gaming so i would recomend you have some spare 25-50 watts just in case.
