That's a 180W power supply you have in there. Its not going to run in that thing.

Your power supply is incredibly weak!
You can buy a HD 7750 but it will probably crash and shut down every time you play a game.

then what's the recommended psu for 7750.except psu is all things ok and will support the 7750?

It'll run on a 300W. Not an absolutely crappy one, but you dont need anything super high end. Something like a CX430 would be nice.

The manufacturer overrates how much wattage the card needs.

But seeing as you dont have a 300W to work with, you might as well get something nice.

its better to buy 400 watt corsair psu because it may be in use later if i oc something.

But your cpu, with 1066mhz fsb, will definitely bottleneck your gpu. Maybe you can use 60-70% of your gpu as an average. Overclocking your cpu will reduce bottleneck. Try to push it 3.6ghz with 1333mhz fsb.

He's got a Compaq though so he might not be able to overclock it.

I would get a new power supply and a card now and then in the future use the power supply and the GPU in a new computer.

That link shows the minimum requirement of your cpu. If you are happy with minimum requirement with low setting/low fps, then nothing matter.

But you will get bottleneck for sure. You will lose 10-15 frame of your gpu. But with this loss, games are still playable and maintain a frame of 30(min) to 40. My HD 6770 gpu is bottleneck by my cpu which is just like yours. 6770 and 7750 are almost same.

Look the best option would be get a good PSU of about 500 W.
If I am not wrong the HD 7750 draws its power directly from the PCIe slot.
So it does not require the PSU to have 6 pin PCIe connectors.
Now back to your question, well your CPU may bottleneck your GPU by a little.
Because at that resolution CPU plays an crucial role while the GPU is not stressed.
You could overclock your CPU to remove the bottleneck.
So yes you should get an HD 7750 and even though you might be bottlenecking your card upto an extent you should still be able to play most games maxed out!

Dosent matter if not same cpu. Only specs difference is cache memory. You are using 3mb where i am using 2mb, which will not affect game performance.

Whatever, if you are happy with that than nothing to argue. If you want confirmation about bottleneck, then check gpu usage with gpu-z. You will see how much bottleneck there is.

It will, depends on cpu intensive game. Though OP will not see any lag and he will experience fast game play with that resolution. He will not see any bottleneck unless he check his fps.

Still, your CPU is slower than an Intel Celeron G530, the slowest processor Intel currently makes.

Now I've got a G530, and on the games I have played on it play nicely. Some settings have to be turned down, and I haven't tried and CPU intensive games.

Then again, I've got 4GB of DDR3, which is faster than your DDR2. I've also got a GTX460 256-bit and an Antec 520W power supply.

To get something that is going to be able to game, you are going to have to upgrade alot of stuff.

Well, you would have to find a hacked version of your BIOS to do it which are extremely rare.

Basically, its impossible to overclock the processor on a pre-built computer.

Hey, BF3 is not a cpu intensive game. He can max it out on 1366x768 res. No problem.

Max payne 3 will run High/medium-high(2x AA)

Skyrim will run on High or more high without lagging.

Not cure about Crysis 2, but he can run more than medium.

He will stuck in GTA4, as it is heavily cpu intensive and gpu as well.

I played those game with my HD6770 @ high setting with 1366x768 res. No lag, but bottleneck. He will less fps than me as 7750 is little bit slower than 6770. But game will not lag on high setting. Only game i stuck is witcher 2 on Ultra setting for my cpu.

I didnt say there will be lag on your system, did i? But bottleneck. Means you will get 40 fps instead of 50 or 30fps instead of 40. I think you have idea about fps(Frame per second). You can maxed out in most game without lagging.

You should be fine then. Without lag, yes. Max settings, no.

BF3 is intensive when playing online.

And forgive me, for some reason when I wrote what I said I was thinking of the 6670 which I have benched in most of those games. The 7750 is faster than that so you should be able to play them better.

Except for GTAIV, thats going to have issues.

Then its on customize setting and the cpu is good enough. To get 35-40 fps with 7750, you will need a better cpu or you will get 22-25 fps in gta4. But it will be playable.

But you should be fine as Deemo 13 said except BF3 online and gta4. Singleplayer BF3 will be fine on your cpu.

I didnt say gta4 will not run. Even 1.8ghz core 2 duo can run it, but slowly or have to use very low setting.

As you brought the game, then the best thing would be testing yourself. Just run the and see if can run smoothly @ maxed setting/very high. Try to set detail distance as high as you can and check fps with FRAPS. Then you will know. No need to ask anymore if you experience yourself.
