Good Day to all, I am a new comer in this site and forum;

I am planning to upgrade my System Unit by buying a new graphics card here are my specs:

MIS 785GTM-E45
-it has a build in video memory [ Video Memory: 512.00 MB ]

IMaster 80 (bronze) 500w

-[Current Color Mode: 32 bits per pixel],
-[Refresh Rate: 59 Hz],
-[Pixel Shader Version: 3.0],[Vertex Shader Version: 3.0]

Gigabyte GZ-P5 Chassis

* my choices are HD 7750,HD 7770 and GTX650

>my concern was my PSU does not have a 6pin power adaptor,so base on the three i can one choose HD 7750in that case what should i buy?

-Sapphire HD 7750 1GB/128bit ddr5

or a
-Power Color HD 7750 1GB/128bit ddr5

>2nd concern if i choose HD 7770 or GTX 650 can i add/use a molex to 6pin power adapter on my unit,is it advisable,can my unit handle this or it can harm my unit because of power consumption?,BTW i dont have enough budget to upgrade my PSU so maybe I am away from that decision,
-in case i use a 6pin connector/adapter what whould you prefer for me a HD 7750 or a GTX 650 and what brand and version?,you can include more brands just rank it

That's a crappy PSU and I'd just recommend replacing it with this one (depending on where you live you can get it cheaper after rebate, $25 on newegg).

But if you don't want to upgrade the PSU then I'd get the sapphire 7750 as long as it's a GDDR5 memory version, stay away from any 7750 with DDR3 memory.

If you are getting a new PSU then grab the 7770

If you'r worried about power but not upgrading the PSU get the 7750 as mentioned above

the 7770 also requires a 6 pin PCI power lead (i had one a little while ago, but got pissed off with crap drivers for it and went nvidia!) some GPUs that require PCI power will have a molex adapter so you can draw the feed from there, but i would agree with andrewcarr and get yourself a new PSU to go with. i'd say buy the nvidia card, just make sure you get it from somewhere that supports the Step-up program and you can upgrade it for the cost of the difference between cards if you play your cards right!

What is your budget? You might be able to build a much better computer that.
