HP Z400 and AMD FirePro W5100

HP Recommended
HP Z400
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (32-bit)

Hoping for a little help:

I have HP Z400 and i would like to run Autodek 3ds Max, and it looks like i need to upgrade the graphics card. Due to cost I think i am leaning  towards AMD FirePro w5100. I believe the Z400 have 475W and the graphic card is 400W so i think i should be ok?? The current config has a 500g SATA and 4g, i would like to install a 120 SSD along with the 500 SATA and upgrade to 16G along with the AMD w5100.  I am just not sure if i have enough power to run?

 

Any help would be apprecaited

@PANC,

The single slot AMD FirePro w5100 is rated at <75W.  The card recommendation is 500W, so your PSU   might    be OK.  Be aware the Z400 is a business machine, the PCIEx16 slot is GEN2, the w5100 is GEN3.  It would still work, but at GEN2 speed.
