Depends. What are the specs on the rest of your system? How old is the power supply? What's the wattage on the 12v+ rail? Who makes it? Answer those four and we should be able to give you a pretty good answer.

Yes it will run. However keep in mind you'll be severly bottlenecked by your CPU. I would say get something like a 5670: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and save the rest. In games like BF3 you'll experience annoying micro-stutter because the CPU can't keep up with the GPU. As one who's been in a situation similar to yours a while back, I can say it's a good idea to keep balance.

That said, you could get the 7750 and use it for later if you want to upgrade. 7750 is a decent card there's no doubt about that.

You may want to verify motherboard compatibility, but it "should" work without issue.

Probably couldn't do it. That would require 2x4pin CPU connectors (I THINK), of which I bet your board only has 1. Plus that extra 30w pushes you too close to the 300w envelope IMO. Get a new PSU then maybe.

Please, tell us what brand is your PSU, if it doesnt have a "brand" or any sticker that says its voltages and that kind info, i wouldnt get a new processor + GPU.

I would recomend getting a new PSU and then save for change the GPU and the processor and you will be really happy, with the confidence that everything will work as it should.
