Will my system handle a 7750?

System Specs:
Windows 7 x86
AMD Athlon ii x4 630 @ 2.8GHz (I know its old)
4x2GB SDRAM 10600
Foxconn MOBO
Radeon 6570 1GB DDR3
750 GB 3.5'' HDD 7200 RPM
Antec EarthWatts 380W PSU
26'' LCD Plug and Play TV/Monitor

I see some really nice prices right now for the DDR5 7750 1 GB, which is more than twice as powerful as my current card. I used the Power supply Calculator on newegg and although I have an extra 70Watts or so, will it cause any bottlenecking?

It should be fine. The 7750 uses a little less power than the 6570 uses IIRC.

Also, it's GDDR5, not DDR5. Anyone and anything that says otherwise is wrong. There is no such thing as DDR5 yet, only GDDR5. We don't even have DDR4 yet, lol. DDR5 isn't going to launch until like 2019 or thereabouts.

Yea man I ran a 7770 with a FX-8150 on a 380w Earthwatts. Both of those use more power than what you have. It was cutting it close and actually under heavy loads it was putting out around 400w but its a decent power supply and shouldn't be a problem.

I found a recommendation of 400W PSU so you might get away using you 380W PSU.

I would guess the CPU might become the bottleneck in you system and not the GPU

Yeah, some people told me I could go as high as a 7770 GHz edition the last time I asked.
