i gigs RAM DDR2
450W PSU INTEX with 20A on 12V rail

should i go for hd 7750, it doesnt require a 6 pin pcie connector or go for GTS 450?
please give me a solution. I plan to upgrade pc later

7750 is allot better than that GTS450 but they both suck for gaming cards if you want to run 1080P latest games etc.

Boopoo, I think you missed the part where he has a 3.0Ghz P4 and 1GB of RAM (edit not to mention the 450W PSU) :non: 

A 7750 is a bit overkill for that system plus it's a little overpriced for the performance it delivers. Of course you do want to upgrade the rest of your system. I'd say you're better off with a 6770 which is faster and while it uses more power than a 7750 it uses less power than a GTS 450 and it's faster than both

If you're not going to upgrade for a while though then it may make more sense to just get a 6670 with DDR3 for now which would preform about the same in that your current system.

I would recommend that you get more RAM and OC the CPU to get the most out of your new GPU, but honestly I think that even the lower end 6670 will generally be held back by your old CPU.

I think you fail to understand the 7750 take no external power but ya OPs rig it terrible for gaming and P4 was not even great in it prime. PS 7750 is coming close in performance to 6770

buying the 7750 in your case would be the biggest bottleneck on the face of the earth. If u was in ur position i would update all of your other computer hardware like the processor, motherboard, psu, and ram. the 7750 uses up a good amount of power and a 450 w would never cover that. what i recommend is to save up some money and modernize your system and then focus on a new graphics card...hope this helped

LOL what is it with people and there obsession with PSU requirements read the comments before you post the 7750 is a brand new extremely power efficient GPU that doesn't even take any external power in fact under max load takes a mere 55watts 450watts you can run 7750 no sweat.http://www.hwcompare.com/11729/radeon-hd-7750-vs-radeon...

The 7770 should work with your PC as it only requires a 450w. The sapphire card comes with a molex to PCIE power connector. As long as you have a spare molex on your PSU you should be fine even with this model.

P.S. dont worry about the review as its by a none buyer of the card.

Why do you ask him he obviously does not know what he is talking about being he think a 7750 will max out a 450watts PSU LOL and yes 7750 is good for you but you need a whole new rig to run games decent just a GPU alone will not help you much.

I looked at your full configuration. You have a low resolution monitor by today's standards, 1024x768. Depending on the games you play and settings you're willing to accept, a HD7750 should do very well for you. Anything much stronger would be utterly wasted on your current CPU, but actually you could go for something weaker as well. You're using X300 integrated now, which I doubt can even load modern games. Since you're going to upgrade the whole system later anyway, consider minimizing what you spend now. An old HD4670, GT240, or HD5670 might be available for less, and be a good interim choice.

the problem is hd 7750 is pcie 3.0 and mine is pcie 1.0. Does that become a problem?

I can't tell. If you cannot find out from the GPU or mobo manufacturer, you could always safely choose one of the other cards I listed. They're weaker than the HD7750, but so much stronger than your current IGP, and you will be able to play most modern games at your low resolution. They'll also work in your PCIE 1.0 slot.

depending on the 450-watt power supply (manufacturer), it could be just fine..

7750 is 55Watts max TDP no six pin power PCI-E required therefore 7750 will work on any 450watt PSU period so log as said 450watt PSU is not running an OCed FX 81xx CPU with liquid cooling loop 10 HDD and 20 fans etc but in that case you would not be looking to run such a low end low power card such as the 7750 LOGIC FAILED.

Until you upgrade your current system the P4 CPU will bottleneck the HD 7750.

You may or may not have issues installing a PCI-e 3.0 card in a PCI-e 1.0 slot. Technically they should be compatible, however, a few people have reported issues with installing a PCI-e 2.1 card in a PCI-e 1.0 slot.

At this point it would be a shot in the dark. At best it will work, but will be bottlenecked by the P4. At worst it will not work and you will need to either hold on to it until you build a new system or return it.

Add a gig of RAM, install service pack 3 for XP (why haven't you by now?) and don't get anything greater than a GT 240 or HD 4670. You can then play 2005 games with it (and with hardware that old that's about all its good for). I'm not trying to be a jerk but there's no sense spending more than that for a GPU for such an old machine.

Most of my [older] games can be maxed with a HD6670 at 1920x1080. I never got to test Skyrim on it, but estimate I would have gotten medium-high settings with it. The HD7750 is stronger than that, so to say it "sucks" at games is elitist nonsense. If you're going to upgrade this PC, a HD7750 is not a bad choice at all, even if it will be bottlenecked now. The other choice is a much weaker card that is more balanced to the CPU (HD4670, HD5570, or GT240) and then plan to replace it along with everything else.

Well or not it maxes games or not they still look like crap cause the 66xx cant handle AA/AF
