    Hi Babi,
    sorry your post was missed. Do you still need some advice?

    Your options look like they'll do the job did the originals fail or?

    Hmm... Well a quick look around found this:
    GeForce GTX 750 Ti
    http://www.geforce.co.uk/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gtx-750-ti/specifications

    It also only requires a 300W PSU. The GTX650 needs a 400W so you would have been right on the limit with the new card and PSU. This at least gives you a little breathing room whilst it also being faster and less power hungry.

    Here's a link (plus EVGA is a great brand usually with lots of freebies):

    The card does have a fan and as long as the case is reasonably well ventilated then you should be fine. Do you have any internal case fans as such?

    Does your current hardware get particularly hot?

    You'll probably be fine then. The PSU of course has a fan which has been shown via tests to remove a surprising amount of heat from the case.
