Hi,
I am trying to upgrade my OptiPlex 745 with Radeon HD 6770 video card.

according to dell website, I got

Mini-Tower
Power Supply
305W

Will this be good to support Radeon HD 6770 video card?

I also noticed that Optiplex 745 only has PCI-E 1.0 slot, will that work with Radeon HD 6770 video card which is PCI-E 2.x desing too?

thank you,

No, that card is too big for a mini tower and also, the 300 w PS will not be enough to run that card. you need to find a card that's low profile.
Something like this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Thank you for your reply. Would a power supply upgrade solve the issue?
Thanks you!
