    If the PSU in your PC is at least 500W and if you have enough room in the case to fit this GPU, then yes. Also your PC should support UEFI BIOS. If your PC has come with windows 8 or 10 when you bought it, then it is has uefi bios. If it has come with windows 7 pre-installed then it has legacy bios. If you have legacy BIOS the GPU may or may not work.
    Always post the following characterisitcs of the device:
    -Model number
    -Part number(not required, but helpful)
    -Operating system

    Helios 300 and Nitro 5 users DO NOT update the BIOS to version 1.22 if you don't want the keyboard's backlight to turn off after 30 seconds even when the device is plugged in.

    If your computer has Intel B85 chipset or Intel H81 chipset and came pre-installed with Windows 7, then you still have a modern UEFI....and it should still work.  Windows 7 was installed in legacy mode.  If it came with Windows 7 and you upgraded to Windows 10, then you might want to wipe your drive and re-install Windows 10 with CSM set to never (in the BIOS settings).

    Use cpuz to check your chipset.
