    My computer specifications are here.

    The PSU might be around 400w to 500w

    Do you know what brand it is?

    As stated in the 99+ other threads that he's started, gaming.

    What exactly does that mean?

    If I were you, I would not trust it to run either of those cards.

    OH, sounds like its handled then, unless he just went ahead and bought one of the cards anyway and is now quickly on his way to hearing a quick pop and sizzle.
