  1. Bump :)
  2. Go with a Radeon 7750 - that way you won't have to upgrade your PSU.
  3. What PSU model do yo have? Some 450W rated units can handle a Radeon 7950 or GTX 670 in your situation perfectly fine whereas some would struggle with anything more than a 7750.
  4. This is the best card in that price range.

    Just make sure you've got a high quality power supply.I know only one 450W power supply that can handle the card and it's a very high quality unit made by XFX.

    Otherwise if you're not sure what you power supply is, then buy this card instead.

    It's about 5% slower but it will most likely going to run on a a normal 450W PSU without any problems.

    OR if your power supply is made by a unknown or low quality brand, you shouldn't buy a card more powerfull than the HD 7750

    Here are some brands that make high quality power supplies.
    Antec, Corsair, XFX, Seasonic, Silverstone, OCZ, Enermax, PC Power & Cooling, Fortron (FSP)

    And here are some brands that usualy make low quality power supplies at that wattage range :
    Cooler Master , Codegen , Spire, Logisys

    Antec has an excellent 450W PSU that can handle more than a 7870. XFX doesn't make PSUs, their PSUs are made by Seasonic. I think that this Antec 450W is also made by Seasonic.
