  1. Before you do anything you might want to think about upgrading that power supply. It is going to severly restrict what you can upgrade to on the video card.
  2. yeah, might be tough its a lenova slim , and that stuff is usually propriatory.
  3. the psu is tiny
  4. IMO you will need to get a bigger psu, go for something like 250-300W if you want run have the 6450

    nah it comes with a geforce 310 as an option , and the 6450 uses same as geforce 310, just wondering i can sneak in a 5570-5670 or 6570-6670
  6. Power Supply:

    You need to keep TWO things in mind:

    1)overall Wattage (find an online calculator)
    2) Amps required by the Graphics card (the +12V rail or rails must supply this amount. I recommend at least 1.25x the value of the graphics card requirement to be safe.)
