So I intend to buy a new video card - the ATI Radeon 7750 1GB GDDR5 but I am very curious if my CPU will bottleneck it. Here are my specifications:

Processor: Pentium Dual-Core E5300 2.6 GHz
Motherboard: Foxconn G31MXP
Monitor: 1920x1080
PSU: 450 WATTs

Can I go for the 7750? If not what is your suggestion for the best GPU I should buy? Please notice that my power supply is just 450 watts and I don't really want to buy a new one just to fit the new GPU. I need your help, thanks in advance.

7750 is a good choice. any new graphics card will bottleneck your dual core. to counter the bottlenect turn up the graphics settings. 60 frames is recommended for games
