An HD6450. Stay away from that PSU, I wouldn't trust it running a powerful GPU.

the 7750 is the go to low power gpu that requires no auxilary power pin to power it. with a total of 276w on the 12v rails, a 7750 should normally work under normal conditions.

Yeah, a Radeon HD 7750 at stock speed should be fine for your PSU. Anything more powerful and you will need to buy a new PSU.

AMD Radeon HD 7750 and 7770 review
Measured power consumption R7750

System in IDLE = 155W
System Wattage with GPU in FULL Stress = 188W
Difference (GPU load) = 33W
Add average IDLE wattage ~10W
Subjective obtained GPU power consumption = ~ 43 Watts

thats with a cpu in the test system that draws 5 more watts (Core i7 965 / X58 system)

it would be wise to keep the load on that no name PSU under 57%. (200 watts)

"trying" a PSU is not generally a genius idea, especially if its a low end one. You are better safe than sorry with the PSU realm, I would go for the 7750.
