    300w with hd 7750 :lol:

    hd 7750 requires 1 6pin pcie connector that psu doesnt have that. :heink:
  5. hd 6670 is the best card for that 300w psu its good in performance doesnt requirs that much power.:)
  6. 7750 will not support in my pc...
  7. it will support your pc but the only fact is the psu so if you want to upgrade your psu with 1x6pin pcie connector and 450w then it would alright.:)
  8. so 6670 ......will be the best choice for my 300 w power supply pc.....
  9. what is the model name of your psu? that is important to know if your psu is mordern one then yes.

    toms did a review of the 7750 using nothing but 55W max with no external connectors.
    it will run on that psu
    and yes it will be compatible with your system.
  11. first of all who are the builders of the card they are recommending 1x 6pin pcie connector and even the older one hd 6750 requires one so op dont take the risk.
  12. Every review I've read says the HD 7750 does not have nor need an external power connector. The card actually uses LESS power than the HD6670.
  13. maybe i be wrong anything can happen i just tell him that because of amd system requirments there is given that it needs that connector thats why by.:)

    yep spot on, why would the card have a 6 pin connecter if it uses less power than the 6670 that haven't got one? and i also have seen in every review i have read that it doesnt have a connector so i think the OP definitely should get the 7750. it will run fine on 300w.
  15. OP list your full system specs and budget, why have you not already provided this info... smfh

    man my bad i just looked at the requirments thats why. :pfff:
  18. hey... now i hav a integrated graphic card with intel h57.....so ...there will be a problem if i am installing a new graphic card.....???
  19. No you will just have to disable the onboard in bios and.choose the pcie device as primary display.
  20. ^+1 there will be option in bios that primary dis play one three option will appear pci,pcie,onboard so choose pcie one.:)
  21. then should i go for hd 7750....
  22. yes it will be an good upgrade for your system.:)
  23. @OP

    7750 will work but it would be nice to know the make and model of your psu at least, its been requested several times now in this thread and imo not listing your full and complete system specs is making everyone have to tiptoe around solving the problem, please list your specs and expectations and giving advice will be that much easier...

    Wattages are usually largely overstated, of course that is assuming you have a quality PSU.
  25. I really dont see an issue pushing an extra 55w through the pcie but it would be.nice to know the brand.and.such although i have.the sinking feeling its a no name prebuilt pc psu. Still should be.ok Im thinking. Ive ran cards as such on no name hp psu before
  26. On most current motherboards you do not need to mess with the BIOS to install a discrete card. Usually the onboard video will be disabled automatically when there is a card in the PCI-E slot.
  27. i dont know the name of my psu.....but my pc is hp p6338in.....
  28. Then it is a stock no name 300w psu. I still think it shouldnt be an.issue and.worst case scenario you would have to pick one up with a little more oomph
  29. so...wat will i do??????
  30. Get a 7750.
    Put it in.
    Install drivers.
    Play games.
    Have fun
  31. ^Agreed +10000 we can all move on from this :bounce:
  32. thanx guys for ur all suggestions....i decided to buy 7750....
  33. Grats on the upgrade good luck
  34. 7750 is ftw with its low power consumption.
  35. hey...1 more doubt.. 7750 need 64 bit operating system.????.it is shown in system requirements of 7750 in amd website and it says that it is highly recommended.....
  36. it doesn't need it, should still run no problem on 32 bit os
  37. Yes you will be.fine. 64 bit os is recommended for any gaming rig as you need it to run more than 4gb of ram but for the card and system you have it wont hurt anything to have 32bit for now
  38. thanx..
  39. When ati 7750 will release?????
  40. the 7750 is already out.
  41. Dude don't listin to the first guy, just get a 7750 trust me it works with the PSU :)
  42. Umm dont listen to the first guy? I was the first guy and i recommended the 7750 for his.300w psu.......
  43. imo 7750 is a great option
    yesterday i called a local store they told me that7750 is not available in delhi,india right now
  44. also if u have enough buck then also buy a new psu with more watts and better !12v rail.....it will not only secure your current need but also future ones too.....
  45. The entire point.of this thread.is for OP to get a card for gaming without upgrading his psu........
  46. when this ati card releases in india?????
  47. If the HD7750 isn't available yet where you are then your best choice would be a DDR5 HD6670.
  48. Yes the 6670 is the closest thing that will run games and on your 300w psu
  49. i will wait till that card release in india.......
