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.:)

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.

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.

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.

@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.

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

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.

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

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

If the HD7750 isn't available yet where you are then your best choice would be a DDR5 HD6670.
