no need to upgrade your power supply if you get the 7750.
its a fairly powerful card that consumes very little power.
it has same performance as 5770 and it would run fine on your 300 watt psu

I have to ask for your budget as well. HD 7750 will work but it's a pretty weak card.

u also need to specify the model of the power supply. The watt rating is not enough info

Weak as in will not let him play games on high settings. For a PC with an i7 to be balanced, it would have to be at least GTX 660.
