Will my processor keep up with a new graphics card and do i have enough watts?

Hey, i have the M2N68-LA (Narra5) motherboard, and my processor the AMD Phenom(tm) 8750 Triple-core Processor (3 CPUs) ~2.4GHz. And im wondering will the MSI GeForce GTX 750ti run on my computer? Do i have enough watts and will my processor keep up? I was thinking about this graphics card

More about processor graphics card watts
  1. What's your PSU?
  2. You shouldn't get bottlenecked with that processor, IF you do it will be a very small bottleneck.

    You will need to tell us the model of your PSU to tell you if your power supply supplies enough power to run the card.

    It supplies 300 watts, i dont know the model of it. I can open it if needed though.

  5. You will maybe see a little holdback from CPU intensive games(LA NOIR,GTA IV etc.) if you can get a better cpu get one or if your in a tight budget just get the GPU 1st then get a new CPU.

    Those game stutters in my CPU E7600 core 2 duo which is like a match for your cpu heres a link http://www.game-debate.com/cpu/index.php?pid=434&pid2=206&compare=core-2-duo-e7600-3-06ghz-vs-phenom-8750-triple-core

    Sorry for my english not my first language.
  6. You need a PSU like CORSAIR,Seasonic etc. get a 550watts or above your PSU can only handle a HD 7750 GPU which can handle games only @ low-med @ 1080p
  7. Well your motherboard can handle the card. 750 ti only needs a power supply of recommended 300 watts though. Seems like a suitable card for your current specs.

    I dont really play GTA or really big games like that, i just want some games to run on a bit higher settings without lag. So if i just buy that graphics card that i mentioned, will my games run better? I didn't really plan on buying any other parts, since they are kinda high priced, and im just looking to upgrade my pc for just a few years longer

    +1

    Forgot about the tdp of 750 its 50-65 or something right?So yeah he can run the 750 with a decent 300w PSU.

    Give me us the details of your PSU if its generic you need a new psu and yes your games will run better with the new gpu.
    What games are you playing or planning to play?

    No problem,just remember to get a new psu if you,while playing and the display becomes unresponsive cause the psu can't give enough power,and don't overclock the GPU! :D
  13. If you get the reference 750ti then you probably dont need a new psu, it doesnt even have a pci-e connector it draws so little power. It only draws 5amps.

    I'm really amazed how efficient it is,if only its a single slot I'll probably get this instead of powercolor 7770,best single slot card the afox 7850 or something is hard to find.
