I am going to buy a HD 6670 1 GB ddr5 graphic card and my questions are :
1) will my local zebronics 450w PSU be able to handle it?it has got a 15A@+12V
2)I am an average-below average gamer,do i dont need to play games on high,ultra high settings but medium ,so will this be able to run the games in upcoming future like 2-3 years.(or just 2 years) resolution is also pretty low and m not going to change that,its 1366*768(games like witcher 3,cod mf4 and NFS)
3)is this a good match for my Intel i5 2310?

A 12V rail at 15A produces only 180W, you sure there isn't two 12V rails?

The 6670 needs more power than two Geforce 210, so don't buy it.

So what's the solution?.. Upgrading a PSU too?..I am just afraid of the active PFC issues

There's nothing bad about active PFC. It's actually the preferred type of PSU.

I'm using one and there's nothing wrong.

If you want to upgrade your graphics card, you should get a better PSU. You don't need much power, but the lowest worth buying is a 400W.
It will add to the cost quite significantly if your initial layout was just for a 6670.

No,what I m really afraid of,is that apfc psu's require pure sine wave UPS and I don't have one..I have a modified sine wave UPS!:( 

Best solution
