    Three things.

    1. You need the right expansion socket on your motherboard for the video card.

    2. You need space to fit it in, height and width.

    3. You must have a big enough power supply, enough watts.

    As you already have a 6150SE you have the right socket and probably enough space.

    You just need to check the power requirements for the 6770HD.
