If it needs a minimum of 22A the 16A will obviously not be enough no . . . That's not a good psu, it's crap

HD 6670 or HD 7750 would be better choices.

That is a very good power supply unit.

HD 7750 would be the best upgrade for you - it's fastest among them all.

Also, PCIe versions are backwards compatible, that means that 2.1 or 3.0 card will work in 2.0 slot.

My bad, for some reason I thought he had 2.0 slot because he wrote it so unclearly! Anyway, I recommend GT 440 or GT 640.

Yes, that is unfortunately PCIe 1.0 slot. You better stay away from Radeon cards. What is your budget for both graphics card and power supply?

GT 440 and the Antec power supply you linked above will do then.

^Yeah...well. I'm not sure, really that big of a risk? Maybe if the OP could borrow a friend's ATI/AMD card and see...

The risk is big enough not to buy 2.1 card.

Antec is a much better brand for power supplies than cooler master. You should definitely go with the first one.
