Yes, but I'd get an HD5670. Your CPU can not handle more than that, and it's guaranteed to work with your PSU (no 6-pins).

Hmm yeah the 5750 should probably have a 450W but I probably will work. Like shadow said tho might be worthwhile to just go with the 5670.

No, The specification on that Graphics card is 450W.
I could not find a 3.06ghz celron so I'm guessing your CPU is 65watts
So, add hard drives, RAM, sound card, etc... you'll need a 600-650watt PSU
See below.

No... 600w is a lot more than needed. My friend has a Core 2 Quad and just got a cheap Silverstone 500W PSU and a 5770. Runs fine. If the 5750 says 450W recommended, a good 400W should be able to do it, especially with that CPU which is a lot less power hungry than some newer ones. The question is, is the OP's 400W PSU a good quality one with lots of amps?

The 5750 draws ~70Watts of power on load. His CPU draws 65Watts. He needs 15A on the 12v rail.

I have the choice between these 2 cards which one is better i am not a very big gamer but i am looking for a new card which support directx11. i play games at just 1024 x 768 or 800 x 600 resolution with normal settings:
Nvidia geforce 9400gt 1gb
ati radeon hd 5450 1gb
but is hd 5450 is better than 9400gt,or is 9400gt is better, i am at a very low budget.
