I don't know. It would be pushing that 12v rail badly though and I wouldn't even try. Llano TDP is 100 watts and the 7950 would be 200 watts.

Really risky - not sure it's worth trying it.

I wouldn't be confident running a 7950 on a 450w from any brand.

I'll tell you something though. Whatever they advise you to do, there isn't a man here who could stop himself from trying it just to play on his shiny new toy.

You need to get a bigger psu if you're adding a high end graphics card to your PC.

True Dat. And when something would happen, we'd all cry.
