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)

i recall anandtech reviewed a HEC 350w and it was able to deliver its full power at load (to my amazement) but for how long it would be anyone's guess. since you would be under 275w total power while gaming with the AMD 6770, technically it would run. Would I personally recommend it? no, i would say get the corsair 430w, antec earthwatt 380w or antec neo eco 400w

I think I will it a try & will check its performance & see If it is working on full scale or not , will inform you then.

"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.

Ok I'm going for the 7750, but will OC edition work fine too ?
