I currently own a 4 year old acer aspire am5201 - e5621a that has an onboard radeon 3450 256mb, which is really bad and I'm tired of not being able to play some of my favourite games on anything thean the lowest settings (still only around 30fps)
I would like to upgrade my video card to either a 7750, or the mush more powerful 7770.
the only problem is that my PC only has a 300W PSU, but i know that the 7750 doesnt need a PSU connection at all, while the 7770 needs only 1. My question is will my 300W old PSu have the coreect connector for the 7770 and which of these 2 cards would be best for me
I want to play tiberium wars 3 , red alert 3, aoe 3 on max settings and maybe even some skyrim on medium i hope at least.
my complete system specs are as follows:

7750 will be the safe choice. avoid using 6 pin required gpus on an oem psu
