Upgrade Lenovo H430 Graphics Card w/o Upgrading PSU

I just bought a Lenovo H430 with the following specs:

i3 2100
6GB ram
1TB 7200rpm HDD
Intel GMA HD

The PSU is 280W and I wanted to upgrade the graphics card. I will not be gaming and will only be using it for movies (e.g. .mkv files 10-30GB in size). What is a decent graphics card I could upgrade to without having to purchase a PSU? I'm fairly certain that the PSU is un-upgradeable because it is built into the system.

Thanks in advance.

  1. The intel integrated 2000 graphics shouldn't have a problem running movies at 1080p.

    Ok, thanks. But if in the future I decide to upgrade the GPU, what would you recommend? Something $60 or lower.
  3. Anything $60 or lower won't really do anything your integrated GPU won't do. If you wanted to play games you would need to spend around $100 for a low-mid range card and get a new PSU.

    If you upgrade, the 7750 is the best you can do with that psu. But for under $60 you could find a 6670. It's like 2-3x more performance of the hd 2000 in games.
