My specs: 
 
  • GPU: Asus Radeon 6450 Low Profile
  • CPU: Intel Pentium E5800 3.2 ghz
  • RAM: 3GB
  • PSU: 220W (PFC, 80Plus-certified, more than 82% efficiency)
  • Motherboard:Acer Aspire X1900
  • Max TDP: 65W
 
I will look forward to your answers.
 
PS: I have a small form factor case so upgrading my PSU is not a viable option.

Hmm ... sadly the not viable option could need to be done ... =/  it required at least 400W minimum according to the manual =/ why not go with a GTX 750 it require 300W minimum its still closer to the 220w you have. Hope it will help you =)

That R7 probably works, because R7 250 power consumption is lower than 75W. So 220W PSU should be enough.

I would not put that card on a 220 watt PSU. Even if it could handle it which is unlikely, the heat from the maxed out PSU would most likely overheat the system, especially considering xfx cards have never been the coolest running cards in my experience.

I encourge you upgrade your PSU to 400W or more. Even if the PSU support the card it is likely to cause problems.

Totally Agree.
