Hi Guys,


I'm thinking of getting a Sapphire Radeon R7 240 2.0GB 128Bit GDDR3 graphics card for my G7 N54L, the listed power requirements for the graphics card is a 400w power supply but the maximum power consumption is 30w,

I don't have the technical expertise to be sure of this but I've checked on the power consumption specs which states a maximum of 30w, based on that it should be a problem for the server to handle since it consumes a maximum

of 70 - 80w. 


Am I being overambitious, any thoughts?
