With the power supply you are getting, you will be able to support much better graphics than the HD6450. You will be able to run Starcraft 2 on low to medium settings but if you want to play it at a higher quality I suggest a card like these:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (similar to HD6450)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (unsure if includes low profile bracket?)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (most recommended)

However, please be wary that your PC model is known to have issues with non-HP PSUs.

Add: May also be possible to run all of the above cards in your current PSU. How many amps does it have on the 12V rail?

Open up your case and take a look at the sticker usually located on a side of the PSU. Sorry for the late reply.
