Someone asked a question about the PSU, they said it needs a 500w one? i only have a 400w, or will this run on a 400w one?

Xfx states 450, which usually means 400W should work.

i believe he has a corsair cx400 though, which we know isn't some oem or low-end brand crap. it would support a 5750 just fine.

i think it should, i'm not completely sure though...

if you'd rather be safe than sorry, you could get this,
DVI TO VGA CABLE (2m) - Aria Technology

or this one that's a little cheaper, if you don't mind buying from another site.

ati's 5xxx series cards are pretty power efficient. a modern rig with a 5750 should consume about 250w at load, and like i said you don't have a crappy psu. you'll be good.
