I am trying to buy a new graphics card, but I do not know where to start and I'm no expert in this. So I'm to ask what is the best graphics card I can put into my computer, preferably with out replacing the PSU.

My computer is a dell dimension 5150 (Yes, I know its every OLDDD) with a dell DM051 motherboard. It had a 305 PSU.

at a estimated guess I'd say an HD-7750 is the max, how many PCIe power cables does the PSU have? the 7750 won't need any.
