  1. The only thing that would possibly keep it from working with that 775 socket board, would be a BIOS that needs updating. If you've got one of the latest BIOS, there should be no problem.

    But check the nameplate on your PSU and let us know the rating of the +12V rail(s). That is the main determining factor. Nvidia only requires a 300W PSU for the card, but some really cheap PSUs are badly over rated. And I'm not familiar with yours.
  2. I can only find info on the 400W version online, but it states that efficiency is > 70% (although this could only be true for 1 load type (So say its 70% for medium loads but could be only, say 45%, for full loads)) and that it's output power is only 300W. In other words: Upgrade PSU before GPU.
  3. You have this slot;

    1 x PCI Express x16 slot

    And graphics cards are backwards PCI-E compatible, so that will work. As clutch said, you need to have one of the latest BIOS versions updated.

    Power Supply, could you link up a photo of it that has the sticker (on the power supply) with all the information on amps/voltages (single or dual)/and combined wattage.

  5. One thing's for sure... that's no "500W" PSU. It may say it is, but with a single +12V rail rated at only 28A and unknown wattage for that rail, it isn't even a good 300W PSU. You might squeak by using it and the 750 Ti, but I wouldn't use it. Any chance of upgrading to a better PSU?

    I don't think i have enough money to upgrate for PSU. Just for the graphic card.

    If you can only upgrade one, then only upgrade the power supply, unless you want to fry your whole system by buying a new graphics card which is too much for your old psu to handle.

    If you were to upgrade both your PSU and GPU, what would your budget be?

    absolutely.

    I would attempt to save up for a Corsair CX 500, a CX 430 is even enough.

    I live in Albania, in Balkan (Europe). We don't have good salary here and saving is hard.This is the money i saved and i thought this graphic card would fit my pc, but i wanted to make sure.

    If i don't upgrade my PSU, can you suggest me another graphic card with low specs that my pc can support? Price lower than 150 $
