More about graphic card psu 300w
  1. There are a few modern cards that claim a 300W PSU is adequate -- they are cards that require no extra power connectors. HERE is just one example that would work with your computer.
  2. The Radeon 7670 should work with that PSU.
  3. wow guys thx if you have more suggestions plz do leave them thank you again and metalauxilia what radeon 7670 should i use like im not very good with knowing what type should i buy like a gigabyte or a xfx
  4. Gigabyte and xfx are both decent brands EVGA is good too . This Gt 620 will run on your system and it is a really good price.

    Sorry i put the wrong link at first haha.
    The gt 630 will run on your system too it performs a bit better than the 620, but it is a bit more expensive.

  5. The EVGA 630 is a nice little card, but you are a little over on power there; while it would probably run, there are no guarantees on that.

    "Minimum of a 350 Watt power supply. (Minimum recommended power supply with +12 Volt current rating of 20 Amps.)"

    Same for the 620, although only 18A on the 12V rail is required.

    on nvidia's site it says the 630 has a minimum of 300w but that might just be for their model.

    It depends on how much power you need, the GT610 is a good card that will work with your current PSU (HERE), but if you want to upgrade, I would go for a larger PSU that will handle more -- 500W range if it will fit.

    on nvidia's site it says the 630 has a minimum of 300w but that might just be for their model.This one only need 16A on the 12V rail.

    Ah I see it is because EVGA has bumped up the clock by 110mhz.
    The only one he could run really on that PSU is the gt 610
