It doesn't require one. TDP < 75 watts do not require external power.

There were rumours that a high clocked batch of 7750s will come out that *MIGHT* require external power, but no one has seen any yet.

from a bit of looking the model you mentioned relies entirely on the pci-e slot for power.

It might. Depending on what the rest of the system is. So long as you have 1 or 2 HDDs, 1 optical drive, it should work. But you will be pushing the PSU close to its limits, and thus decreasing its longevity.

Optical Drive (any drives that uses optics to read data) like DVD Burners, CD Burners, Blue Ray, etc...

HDDs are magnetic drives.

Sony MiniDiscs are opto-magnetic drives.

etc, etc.

If you plan on getting an aftermarket PSU, make sure it fits! A lot of brand name boxes of PCs can't accommodate a full sized ATX PSU, so make sure you check the dimensions. Also, Cooler Master is cheap for a reason...

The cooler master is not a good power supply, especially the cheaper ones. You can get (in ATX form factor) a nice corsair, or antec for a little more money than the cooler master.

Getting a high quality PSU (not wattage, wattage is NOT quality) will go a long way in ensuring reliability and longevity of your computer. Some of the cheap cheap PSUs actually blow up when they die.

Well, the "computer expert" should know... It will be obvious once he looks at the video card. It doesn't require one though. The "expert" should also be able to recognize if you need a higher powered PSU (or not), by testing the card in your computer. You shouldn't have to worry if someone else is doing the install.

Though most people here would actually be nervous about letting an unknown "expert" touch their PC.
