Can my 300W PSU run GTX 650, HD 7750, or GT 640?

I have a Shuttle XPC which has an old Radeon X800 GTO in it. I can't run modern games on it because it has Shader 2.0.

The package has a 300 watts PSU. However, the PSU specs indicates: +12V1: 16A / +12V2: 16A.
Here is the a link to the PSU: http://www.shuttle.eu/fileadmin/resources/download/docs...

Will the new GTX 650 run on the 300W PSU on normal use and some light gaming on a 1280x1024 monitor? Should I pick the GT 640 or the HD 7750 instead because it does not require a 6-pin power connector?

I want to play Borderlands 2 so I'm getting a new video card. Thanks in advance!

maybe for the 7750/640. I would not recommend using it on the 650, as it requires the 6 power pin which brings it to a new level of power consumption.

A GeForce GTX 650 would work fine with the Shuttle PC61J 300 Watt power supply since the power supply has a combined +12V continuous current rating of at least 20 Amps and has one 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connector.

Oh okay, I thought it's only 16 Amps because of the "+12V1: 16A / +12V2: 16A" specs written on the PSU.

I want the GTX 650 because of the low idle power consumption. I saw it here LINK: http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/geforce_gtx_650_ms...

Thank you very much for your comment. I will get the GTX 650.
You should have the best answer. :D

Actually you would be more than able to use a 650 it has a tdp of 64 watt, I use mine that I just bought to replace my 640 and it runs almost everything 75-100% better :) 
With. Out using the extra 6-pin power connection :)

GTX 650 can run games without plugging the 6-pin power connector? Okay, thanks! Definitely will buy the 650! :D
