ARe you 100% sure that a HD 7750 will run with a 350w PSU?

because i went on the amd website and it said:

PCI Express® based PC is required with one X16 lane graphics slot available on the motherboard
500W (or greater) power supply with one 75W 6-pin PCI Express power connector recommended
600W power supply (or greater) with two 75W 6-pin PCI Express power connectors recommended for AMD CrossFire™ technology.

i wouldnt take the chance. Just buy a better power supply.

i would say something old, ATI 4000 series or equivalent Nvidia, and even that may strech the power consumption a bit. just get a good 550w psu and something like a 5770 or better.

someone also said about a 400w PSU:

"
Yep, the HD 7750 is a sub-75W card, it doesn't require any external power connector.

A decent 300-350W psu is enough for that card, so your 400W is plenty.

"

so i might go for this card and hopefully it should work fine.

It would run on a 300W PSU, maybe even less. The thing only draws 55W max.

For a 350w psu.. go for a hd 7750. Even a hd 7770 will work but with a cheap psu it's risky. gtx 550 ti consumes a lot of power.. try gtx 650 its better in regards to power consumption.
