well, the hd7750 is more powerful than a hd6670, but it actually uses less power. Both are generally quite small physically compared to some of the more powerful and power hungry cards out there. Of course neither card requires a pcie 6pin power connector and both get all they need from the pcie x16 slot on the motherboard or less than 75w(55w for hd7750 and 65w for the hd6670). Your i3 is a fairly low wattage processor(65w) and those two parts will make up the vast majority of +12v power use on your supply(guessing that is the 240w you are talking about on your admittedly relatively crap 450w psu is +12vv power). I think you should be fine(many people can run a hd7750 with a more power hungry processor on a 300w, 250w or even 240w psu). Best of all, you don't really need to spend anywhere near 120 bucks to pick up a hd7750.

I had a 400W generic psu before...it ran my 7750 without issues for a year until I sold them both...

It may be a bottleneck in some games. Not sure you can stretch the 4GB you have now as a 32bit OS will only let you use about 3.25GB-3.5GB and the 1GB vram on both the proposed cards will cut into that by another 1GB. AFAIK, a flash drive would count as storage and not system ram. Even if it did, it would be much, much slower than system ram. Barely faster than your HDD.

Upgrading to a 64 bit OS will of let you use all of your system ram(I think microsoft limits you to 16GB on windows 7 home premium and 128GB on more expensive versions. Not sure about windows 8. Probably allows for more. You can also have virtually unlimited vram afaik). The cost of a new OS and a new card may well put you above budget(unless you are willing to spend more). You will have less of a bottleneck by being able to use all your ram. However, I think there are a few games now that can use more than 4GB of ram all by themselves, not to mention having to have the OS loaded into ram. Then again, if you go with the likes of a hd7750 or hd6670, maybe you won't really have that problem.

Actually, your i3 would probably become a bottleneck before your 4GB of ram. If you want to both get a new card and a new copy of windows, you might consider something like a hd6570 ddr3 and overclock the core so it is more like a hd6670 ddr3. That should work pretty well for you since you monitor is essentially 720p. You might have to turn things down a bit(from ultra to high or high to medium), but you should still have a good experience.

7750 will help you out mann, but I would also think about upgrading to windows 8 and a 16 gb RAM. Also you are referring to readyboost by virtual RAM, ats not going to help mann, Readyboost is an alternative for the system page file, not RAM. So don't rely on it. Hope this helps...
