well, depends on your system (no idea what you have) but that power supply is weak so nothing that would recquire a power connection. possibly a 7750 at best.

Do you recommend upgrading psu or is the cost higher than a new pc?

thats not a standard psu, so you cant just drop in a new one, unless you contact dell for an upgraded unit (wich wont be cheap, even if they are able to help you).

what are the rest of your system specs?

maybe its worth an upgrade but hard to tell without knowing the system.

Intel pentium E2220

that cpu wont hack it. i have one, and have tried it with swtor, no good. time to invest in a new build, you can put something new together for cheap.

What are you trying to do with the system that you feel you need to upgrade the VGA card?
