in short : NO.

Explanatin : I would recommend you not to use the PSU with it.. the PSU may fry your graphic card as the power output may not be of a quality one that the GPU needs..

suggest you to take a look at corsair 500 watts PSU when upgrading it..

I see that the PSU has a -5V rail. This means it is years obsolete, and likely overrated. Even so, a system with a HD7750 won't pull 150W while gaming, so it should be okay. Keep in mind though, that such PSUs may die for indeterminate causes (e.g. Mom turns on the garbage disposal, Wife turns on a blowdryer, or a thunderstorm passes within a few miles), and cheap PSUs may take other parts with them when they die. Replacing it is probably a good idea for the long term health of your system. Unless you plan significant further upgrades, one of the 300W 80+ bronze Seasonic PSUs would make an excellent budget choice.

The 380W Antec Earthwatts is another good one. Please note that the Corsair "CX" units were made using some inferior Samxon capacitors that do not tolerate heat well, and are known for early failure. Still, you won't be putting much of a load on it, so even a low-end Corsair would be safer than what you have now.

Thanks I'm only going to have the psu with that card for a few months hopefully it doesn't blow up by then. :)

The 380W Earthwatts is an excellent PSU; easily enough for your system, even if you get a more powerful card later.
