well. technically you mayyyy be able to run it

but the answer is no.

500+ watts is what you should look for.(probably higher than 500 is best if you plan on running SLI at some point)

brands such as - ENERMAX and Antec are reliable brands.
Aspire is a no no as far as i can see. so go with those brands
