My specs: 
 
GPU: Asus Radeon 6450 Low Profile
CPU: Intel Pentium E5800 3.2 ghz
RAM: 3GB
PSU: 220W (PFC, 80Plus-certified, more than 82% efficiency)
Motherboard:Acer Aspire X1900
Max TDP: 65W
 
I will look forward to your answers.
 
PS: I have a small form factor case so upgrading my PSU is not a viable option.

Specs I am looking at is for Evga GT640
 
Memory Size : 2 GB
 
Memory Type : DDR3
 
System Requirements : 350 Watt or greater power supply with a minimum of 20 Amp on the +12 volt rail.****
PCI Express, PCI Express 2.0 or PCI Express 3.0 compliant motherboard with one graphics slot.
 
****Minimum system power requirement based on a PC configured with an Intel Core i7 3.2GHz processor.
 
 
Your PSU : Is less than what is required to power this card at 350 Watts or greater
 
Your Memory is : 3 GB, the graphics card uses 2 GB, leaving you with 1 GB of available memory
 
Therefore you need to upgrade your memory upto 8 GB, and upgrade your 220 Watt PSU with a 350 Watt or greater power supply.

I think you misunderstand the specs. That 2GB is 2GB of onboard graphics memory. It does NOT use the main RAM.

 

@MediaMix

I think you will need a PSU upgrade, but your RAM should be fine.
