We need specs.. Especially PSU specs. Wattage isn't enough. Include watts on 12V rail, brand and model.

Yes that. For your power supply, the best GPU is AMD Radeon HD 7750.

Hmmm...maybe HD 6850 (I recommend getting Gigabyte's one, it's the best HD 6850 out there)? I guess it can work just fine with that little power.....?

6850 has a max power use of 10.6A so there is very little left for cpu etc . . . ( not enough imo )

So, +1 for the 7750

Huh what? Are you kidding? 24amps? My 6990 needs 32.5amps!

Here's the math buddy:

75w (6pin) + 75w (PCIe slot) = 150w / 12v = 12.5amps MAX.

ANYWAY

Any of these cards will be fine at a low resolution of 1366x768... save some money (but the 7750 listed prior would be a good choice).

I heard CPU and other components can work just fine with the remaining 2.5 amps!

The 550ti max AMP requirements is 12.5... which it will probably never use unless running Furmark for any prolonged amount of time.

nVidia states it's max power draw is 116w.

So again the math - 116w / 12v = 9.6amps

As you can see the power requirements aren't very great; but would I recommend the 550ti? No.

http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gt...

Obviously the recommended 400w/24amps is for the rest of one's system components.

Really? Here I'll quote him again~

I said it doesn't nor did I recommend the 550ti. But what he really meant was left unwritten correct? Farcical!

OP's word's~

Which I did, nothing too extravagant for a resolution of 1366x768 which my notebooks GT630m runs fine. I ALSO mentioned the 7750 that was listed above was a good choice.

Sinius being sarcastic that is, not russk1. Sinius posted just before i finished my reaction, so it looks like i mean that Russk1 is saracstic. Pfffffffff, make it unnessary difficult. ( i'm good in that )

My "stupid Dutchie" reply was also sarcasm.

Oh, pickie, pickie. You sound like my old math teacher.

What does it matter how i state it, with a 550ti you'll need about 24A om the 12V rail.

Any which way you put it the 15 A is never, ever gonne be enough :kaola:  :kaola:  :kaola:

It's all good, no hard feelings... and for the record I'm not trying to be a dick. Just that it's being over complicated... OP wants a card but can't upgrade the psu. First thing that came to my mind were cards that are powered by the PCIe slot with no auxiliary power connectors. Say, GT 640 or 6670, etc.... doesn't have to be these cards but they're cheap and effective for the low resolution thus avoiding the confusion of the power requirements.

OP, the problem here is that the "450W" label on your PSU-shaped object is undoubtedly a bald-faced lie. It is probably not good for any more than 300W. The strongest card you can safely run without your PSU dying in a shower of sparks is a HD7750. Fortunately, that card will do well at 1366x768. If you prefer nVidia cards, you can run a GT640, but be aware that's a much weaker card.

GTX 550 Ti WILL NOT WORK ON YOUR PC!

Get the HD 7750. It performs similarly to GTX 550 Ti. And it's got one more advantage: it will work on your pc.

*Hi, from a tech:

(the following assumes you keep your current PSU. You did not state a budget, exactly what you needed the new graphics card for, your CURRENT graphics solution, or even why you must keep the current PSU. That would have been helpful.

If I had this information my answer might have been different.)

Apparently there are no 6-pin or 8-pin outputs on your PSU.
http://www.game-debate.com/psu/index.php?ps_id=374&psu=...

I can't find any confirmation on the outputs.

My recommend:
I strongly recommend the HD7750 1GB.

The new hd7xxx and GTX6xx cards both use a 28nm die shrink that drastically reduces power. Not only is power a concern, but you require a card with no 6-pin or 8-pin inputs since your PSU does not have these.

Other:
I assume that this is meant for PLAYING GAMES? I just want to clarify, because otherwise it simply doesn't matter what graphics you have.

You'll have to pick and choose your games though, and in the more demanding ones adjust the quality. You flat out need to AVOID many of the more graphically demanding games. Get demos if possible.

Examples of games:
Should run GREAT with HD7750:
- Torchlight 1 and 2
- L4D2
- Angry birds (and similar)

Don't even bother (IMO):
- BF3
- Metro 2033
- Witcher 2

Summary:
- HD7750 1GB or similar (no 6-pin or 8-pin inputs)

Don't say that, HD 7750 will run all games, but the games you told him not to bother with he will only have to reduce settings. For example, at that resolution he will surely get playable rates on Battlefield 3 with no anti aliasing:

Yeah, a HD7750 can play any game out there. Considering how good modern games look even cut down to "medium" settings, it won't be an exercise in suffering either. By contrast, if you use a GTX550Ti, the suffering will begin rather quickly when your PSU-shaped object chokes, smokes, and croaks, likely taking other parts with it into the fiery abyss.

I'm playing crysis at 1360X768 resolution at high setting @ 45 FPS... :D 

trust me you won't be disappointed and flipkart is also offering cash back on 7750 so go get it before its too late.. :p  I guess you are from India right?
