I would not use the PSU. as you can clearly see its only a 168W PSU at 12 V not 400W. to get to 400W they added in the 5V and 3.3V wattages which are barely used. Really the most extreme case of a dishonest PSU I have ever seen. a 7750 is only 60W but you probably have just barely enough power to run what you already have.

Once you buy the 7750 the next Graphics Card call Radeon 8xxx releases.

I think it will work as your cpu isn't power hungry but your psu is very old and low quality by the look of it.

Not really a good PSU. The +12V rails are only have got 14A, which is quite low.
Sorry, but no, you won't be able to go for a HD 7750.

So please suggest a decent graphic card without the need to upgrade anything.

We'd like to know the resolution you're gaming at, first. :) 
An HD 6570 at best.

I think a HD 6570 should suffice.
However, if you had the budget to buy a HD 7750, then I could suggest you buy a new PSU within that budget.
Could you tell us your budget? Doesn't matter if it's in INR.

the 7750 doesn't draw more power than the 6570 which is a rebranded 5670

its uses less power.

I'll just use flipkart, as a price reference.
Although, I doubt if it's the same price in your area.

HD 6570

Do note that the HD 6570 is more or less a 1024X768 type of a card. I don't think it'll game at 1440X900.
That and a Corsair CX430. Shouldn't cost more than 2000 INR and it should fit your budget.

The PSU is what I'm a little worried about.
And his budget doesn't fit a HD 7750. It's about 7000-9000 INR here. Too much...

You said your budget was less than 7000 INR..
Also, I'm really doubtful on that PSU.
Is it the XTech 400W PSU?

Also, that CPU would bottleneck a HD 7750.

get a corsair cx 430 v2 and a radeon 6570/6670/7750 whichever budget allows and be done with it. you don't want to put in a shiny new gfx card and have your low end, old, degraded psu to kill your pc, do you? your cpu might be the bottleneck anyway so even a 6570 will do. i think that allows you to squeeze in a corsair cx 430 v2.

I would say upgrade it for a 600watt PSU :) 

Personally I suggest Corsair GS600.

Your GPU won't use more than 200Watt and will allow your PC to sit in a comfortable zone and what case do you have?
