Hi there, is it possible for me to replace the AMD Radeon R5 330 graphics card which is currently installed with either a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 2GB or a AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB?
Will the power supply support these graphics cards?

The GPU currently in the system has a rated power consumption of less than 25W and your PSU is 180W.
The GTX 660 has power requirement of 140W and Nvidia gives a minimum system power requirement of 450W, it also needs the 6pin power connector
The hd 7850 has power requirement of 125W and AMD recommends at least 300W system power.
It would be necessary to change the power supply to something more powerfull and the Nvidia card also needs a 6pin power connector.
Hope it helps,
