    Hi - hd7750 is you best bet, doesn't need a pcie connector to plug into the PSU, runs
    off the mobo's power. It is less than $100. The 6670 also doesn't require a connector,
    but the 7750 has significantly better performance.

    Some of the other inexpensive cards you might look at will require a 6pin pcie connector, whci
    I don't think your PSU has.

    All I read is that people have had issues with replacing the GPU. Was yours as simple as installing then installing drivers?

    Yes. When i got the card home all i did was turn off and unplug my pc, popped it open, got rid of static, popped the old card out and popped the new one in its place. (i did have to cut out the metal cover of the next pci slot on the back to fit it because the card has a double decker outlet - meaning it takes up 1 slot but there are 2 outlets in the back, if that makes sense - Then i just booted my pc up and installed the drivers from the amd site and BOOM, i was playing.

    hope this help, sorry for bad technical terms lol
