Radeon HD7750 is likely the best choice because its 28nm fabrication process allows it to provide better performance per watt than older GPUs that were fabricated at 40nm. Less power = less heat, so it can get by with a smaller cooler.

Radeon HD7750 uses at most 55 watts, which is well within the maximum of 75 watts that can be drawn from the PCIe X16 slot, so no additional PCIe power connectors are required. However, if you find yourself in that situation again, you may be able to use a simple plug adapter (if the power supply has enough capacity on the +12V rails).http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6812887001http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6812189120http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6812267004http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6812200106
Many graphics cards will include these adapters in the box.
