Title says it all.. also this GPU comes with some type of power chord? My current gpu or any I have ever used never had a power chord.. look here > http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... .... so is this a good upgrade from a geforce gt 520?

SYSTEM SPECS!

CPU- AMD A8 5600k

Yes 480watts is sufficient for the card. Massive upgrade.

thank you.. now my computer has NO spare 6 pin power chords but I see the card comes with a adapter.. the only free chord i have in my system has like a 4 hole prong plug (female end) is this going to work to power it with the adapter that comes witht he card?

If you are talking 4 pin molex yes. Then again if your PSU does not have one it may be old and not have sufficient power in Amps on the +12 volt rail.

Of course. The 750 only needs a 300w power supply.

Yeah easily.
You actually have alot to spare for some overclocking headroom, depending on PSU efficiency.

Normally the board gets 24 pin main power and either 4 or 8 pin CPU power! 6 pin PCIe power is reserved for connecting directly to GPU.
As stated above the GTX750 uses even less power and is fine on your PSU.
