can this psu work with radeon 7750?

i have a turbolink atx-tl500w-bk i cant find it really anywhere so im guessing its just a cheap money grab i have
amd fx4100
8gb ram
nvidia geforce 610

i want to upgrade to the 7750 because i dont want to buy a new psu plus a new graphics card seeing as this power supply doesnt have a 4pin or 6pin should i try it and see what happens or not risk it?

also this is the card i want
why is this cards core clock speed 900mhz
when the other hd 7750s are 800mhz?

  1. You'll be just fine as that card doesn't require a 6-pin power source. And it's factory overclocked an extra 100 MHz.
  2. Yeah you'll be fine. The AMD 7750 doesn't draw that much power.

    As for the clock speed, the reason why it is 100Mhz faster is because it has better active cooling and can control the higher temperature more effectively.

    NO!!
    Replace that psu asap regardless of what you want to attach to it.
    Here is a review of the 500w version:

    From a power point of view, you only need a decent 300W psu.
    Something like the Corsair CX430 is not expensive.

    Good review.. Assuming that the PSU actually provided 500W power then you'd be okay. But look at this review you may want to get a more reliable PSU via what goefelt suggests.

    Size of your motherboard, case and powersupply. Make sure they match or compatible with each other.. If you have a full ATX motherboard and case, then it can take an ATX powersupply.
  7. ITX/ATX/... are sizes of motherboards.
    If your has has 4 openings in the rear for cards, then it will be M-ATX
    If it has one, ITX, and if it has 7 or 8 it will be ATX.
    It sounds like your case can take any.

    Most power supplies also have a size format, among other things. Look at the rear opening for your psu, and the dimensions should be 150mm by 85mm. The length can very, typically 150-170mm.
