i have recently assembled a desktop using
Intel® Core™ i5-3470 Processor
gigabyte GA-B75M-D3H (rev. 1.1) motherboard
i ball SMPS Marathon - 500W Peak
4gb corsair DDR3 ram
1 tb WD HDD
can i run it with a Sapphire AMD/ATI Radeon HD 6670 1GB DDR5 Graphics Card without any issues??

Not sure about the quality of that PSU but a 6670 doesn't take up much power (75w max) you should be fine. If you wanted something that performs better and would still use the same amount of power the 7750 is the best low power card on the market right now. Performs near a 6770.

It will work no problem. Think about adding another 4Gb of ram in the future :p

So there are 2x 12v rails ... One with 15A and one with 12A ... It should do the trick but be careful not to overclock in any way or add some kind of power sucker to your system. I've had a GTS 450 in the past with a 450W power supply and it was working fine but it was very hot.

Yeah you'll be fine. If you get some extra money down the line, think about getting a better quality one. Though for that setup its not necessary for now.

I do not know how to overclock so will not be attempting it,
what do u mean by a power sucker??
thank you.

Whats your question?



the question i wanted to ask was that both the sites (flipkart and amd) say that the card requires a minimum of 400w and u said 75w, i didnt understand.

Best solution

Ah they mean for the entire system. The PCI-E slot can only output about 75w max. For reference a 6pin and 8pin PCI-E connector can only output 75w and 150w respectively. :)
