Hi all :)  , I just wanted to know whether my pc is compatible with AMD Radeon HD 7750 or not.
My pc specs :
-Dell Inspiron 560s
-4 GB RAM
-Pentium Dual Core E6700 @ 3.2 ghz [No Overclock]
-250 Watt Power Supply Unit

Will this graphics card work with this much power supply or do i need to upgrade the motherfuckin psu? :p

You will need another PSU.

A decent quality ~400w PSU should handle it.

The case looks kind of small, I'm not sure how much room you have for a video card.

Checking...

....Well, you have a PCI-e slot, but I can't find pics of the inside of the case, or specs on max card length. The 7750 isn't a really long card though.

But some people say that it works fine with 250-300 watts power supply. Are you sure?

I have never tried it, so I'm not 100% sure, but AMD recommends 400w PSU for that card.

There may be some wiggle room in the recommendation, but I wouldn't count on a quality 250w PSU to power that card, much less an OEM unit that claims to produce 250w.

The 7750 draws all it's power from the motherboard PCIe slot. So if you have one, you are good to go, no need to upgrade the psu
