Specs: Windows XP SP2, 1GB
i have a simmtronics G31E(E) motherboard and it has only one PCI Express slot so i wanted to know if the card will fit in coz the metal casing (where we connect power supply) seems as if it will not allow the card to fit in...thnx

Most boards only have one PCIe x16 slot unless it supports SLi or CrossFire. The PCIe x16 slot on your board is the orange slot (see pic). I don't see any clearance problems on the board itself but be aware that many HD 5750 have a large cooling fan & take up two slots. If you're talking about clearance problems inside the case, we have no way of knowing. Here's a pic of your board:

If you go for the HD 5750, make sure you have a decent power supply. It should be a minimum 400W with 30A on the +12v rail & should have at least one 6-pin PCIe plug.

Not a good choice. Have a look at this Corsair 650W with 52A on the +12v:

You could even get by with this Corsair 400W with 30A on the +12v rail for $30:

It's not about the wattage, it's about the amperage. Stay away from the Cooler Master.

"by the way cooler master has 36A"

But it's split...18A on +12v1 and 18A on +12v2. It's not the same thing.

+12v1@18A=feed cpu only (trapped)
+12v2@18A= feed the rest of system components include v-card.

It doesn't have to be a Corsair PSU, but to cut down on potential problems, your should be getting a PSU tht has a single +12v rail at 30A or higher. Based on experiences with other posters from India, decent PSUs (usually called SMPS in your country) are hard to come by. Tell us which brand names are readily available & one of us should be able to help you make a good choice. Since Cooler Master is apparently available, have a look at the GX series, how about the GX-550W?

I have no idea what "space" you're talking about.
