OptiPlex 745 Mini towern upgrade with Radeon HD 6770

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=N82E16814161374
  2. Thank you for your reply. Would a power supply upgrade solve the issue?
    Thanks you!
  3. No, that card is too wide for that mini tower
  4. plus you said its PCIE 1.0 needs be 2.0 for it to work
