I doubt it, unless the rest of your setup is power hungry. TDP of this GPU is 120W and your CPU is 77W. Under max load then you'll be at 200W, plus whatever the rest of your system takes to run (I'll guess 100W peak draw). At 80 Plus bronze you should have enough power from a 450W PSU. Won't be efficient at load though

Just installed this and it's causing problems. I installed the software from the CD but I have no broadband because I've moved house so it doesn't have the latest driver yet. But it's being so slow - like I started Skyrim SE and the main menu was unusable! Same with Sims 4 - surely it shouldn't be THIS bad without latest drivers?
