Will this new graphics card work on this current set-up?

Hi,

Here is the current set-up of my friend's computer: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01121574&lc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=3544841&dlc=en

But his graphics card is breaking (Blue screen of death and other issues) so he's buying a new one. I've suggested this graphics card due to decent performance and ace price: http://www.amazon.co.uk/VTX3D-Graphics-Express-CrossFire-Technology/dp/B00BHAXKU4/ref=sr_1_4?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1396435901&sr=1-4&keywords=AMD+Radeon+HD+7750+Graphics+Card

My question is, will this work on his computer? I can't seem to find how much power supply his set-up has. Would the motherboard in the first link work with the new card? Any feedback would be great.

Thanks,
Chris

    I suggest a GTX 750 for about 20 pounds more as that dramatically outperforms the HD 7750 at only a slight increase in price.

    Another benefit of this card is that it does not require a 6 pin power connector so you can plug it in and play.
    This also means it will most likely work with the power supply that your friend has.
  2. In addition to what H4X3R is saying I think it is worth it to get a 750Ti.
  3. I do agree with you sora, but the 750 is already 20 pounds more than what he wanted to spend for a graphics card, so it is up to him if he wants to spend 40 pounds over what he initially planned to get a 750ti.
    If he were to get a 750ti, i suggest the EVGA SC edition as that does not require a 6 pin power connector and it is one of the few 750ti's to support g-sync, if he decides to use it.
