My 3years nvidia Gt 520 dying soon.

Will my spec support a Low profile HD 6670 or 7750? What i knew is that a GT 610 would work on my current specs but well a rename card :(

Also i don't intend to change my psu.

:welcome: joybundle

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but regardless of size the HD 6670 would not work as it requires a 400 Watt or greater power supply http://www.amd.com/u...overview.aspx#3 and the HD 7750 the same http://www.amd.com/u...on-7750.aspx#/3

The GT 610 is not suitable either as it requires a 300W PSU http://www.geforce.c.../specifications

The manufacturers Minimum system requirements are there for all to see and to be guided by.

Having researched the Minimum system requirements for the GT 520 I found that Nvidea does not state what the power requirements are for the OEM version of the card but they do for the retail version so the power requirements may be lower;
GT 520 OEM version http://www.geforce.c.../specifications
GT 520 Retail version http://www.geforce.c.../specifications

The GT 610 is not available as an OEM version so take it that it requires a minimum of a 300W PSU, the card may work but it will suffer from a lack of power, deprive other components of the power that they need and this will ultimately damage your hardware.

As I have highlighted the power requirements are the Minimum that the manufacturers recommend.
