    If you're not looking to buy a new PSU, the safest upgrade is a 7750.

    What is your budget, what is your current card and what graphics capability would you like to accomplish (game, settings, screen resolution)?

    Alright just did some chasing here are the specs of it.

    Cpu: AMD Athlon x2 (3Ghz)
    Mobo: (unspecified FM2 socket board)
    -4 Dimm slots (ddr3 1333mhz)
    -1 PCIE x16 slot (free)
    PSU: Generic 300w unit
    HDD: Generic 1tb 7200rpm drive
    Case size: mini tower


    Some other notes, looks like only the side panel has thumb screws so depending on the mounting system for the psu (couldn't find any images with the side panel off) you may need to pull out the trusty drill to get it out, bloody rivets. Also consider the fact that case has piss poor airflow and the cpu is weak as hell for gaming.
    My honest opinion is if you looking at putting anything more than a 7750 in it just build a new rig, even with stock hardware people have had the cooling fans spin up from what I have read thus far, I would hate to see what it would do with a gpu throwing some heat out.
    Personal rig:
    • i5-3570k (4.2ghz) || CM hyper 212 evo || Asrock extreme 4 || Corsair (2 x 4gb 1600mhz) ram
    • Samsung 840 (120gb) || WD blue 1tb || WD green 1tb
    • Powercolor 7870xt || Silverstone strider 500w ||NZXT source 210
