Default can my 250W PSU run this?

I have a computer with a 250 Watt Power Supply and I want to get a Forsa Geforce 7600GS. Do you think 250 watts is enough for it? There are no power supply requirements listed and I can't find them for the card either.

I have a AMD sempron 3400+ with 2 sticks of DDR SDRAM

Possible, but Highly unwise...

I suggest a 350 or 400 Watt Fortron Minimum...

Any of these other brands will be just fine for such small requirements.
Fortron (FSP)
Coolmax (Green Line And Taurus Series only)
Inwin (FSP Models only)
Power-Man (FSP models only)
Raidmax (Topower and Tagan Models only)
