Probably not
by Jimmy Greystone / June 10, 2013 11:25 PM PDT

Probably not, since you've only got a 270W PSU in that system. That almost certainly rules out the 7750, and you'd have to check what the requirements are for the 6670 and 610 respectively. If any card you are looking at needs more than about a 250W PSU, don't buy it, you'd just be asking for trouble. Even better would be to figure out the power draw of your current 520 then use that as the ceiling for any new card you look at.

I'd stick with the usual.

The low profile 5450 1GB card is the usual upgrade when the owner has a slim line and can't change the power supply.
