A 7750 will likely be a good choice, but could you provide more detail regarding your power supply (make/model etc.)?

I would definetily go with a sapphire 7750 as it doesn't use power from the psu as most gpus need 500w your psu will not handle them and you can get a sapphire 7750 off of amazon for just £80. Definetily go for a 7750 sapphire one because they give the most freebies
