I would recommend the HD 7750 since it does not require much power to run.

well 16A*12V = 192W

So

4W Ram
~65W Cpu
15W Hdd
~67W Gpu peak

=151W

I would get that 7770. 7750 need 45W but thats peak.

Edit : Check if it has only 1 12v rail ?

Don't forgot about the 6-pin power connector for the HD 7770...

HD 7750. Pop it in and play. Overclock when you're ready.

Yeah. Get the Hd 7750 as jessterman21 said. Requires no 6 pin or 8 pin power connectors.

Yes, yes. HD 7750s actually run just fine on 220w PSUs. The card never draws over 40w during gaming unless you overclock it. I doubt your whole system including this card will pull more than 100w during games. And all versions of PCIe x16 are forward and backward compatible.

Like I said, pop it in and play.
