Default A website is selling a computer with a less than reccomended Psu..

Im getting this computer for christmas but the Psu is 350 watts..the reccomended is 400 watts for the 6570 graphics card thats in it.. Will this be safe? Its a trusted site that I doubt would sell a bad computer that wouldnt work but what are the chances I get the desktop and it crashes after a short time because of its psu? also im just using this desktop for mmos if ur wondering about the graphics card level.

If they recommend 400 then dont take anything less, I would point it out to the website and see what they say.

most prebuilt PCs are a rip off anyway, overcharging for 10 minutes of assembley work

Get your own PSU and swap it out yourself.

I never get a power supply under 500 watts for my builds because then if i ever need to add something on im good.

It also depends upon a reliable PSU.
