I am wondering if I need to upgrade my power supply before putting a new video card in, i was looking at the radeon 6670 because I saw that it was able to crossfire with my a10-6700.
My power supply is the stock one for the asus m11bb, 350w. the label says AcBel.

12v1: 13a
12v2: 13a

If i cant run the radeon 6670 on this psu could you recommend an upgrade?

HD6670 pc needs 17A on the 12V rail and 400W total - minimum.

Yours only has 13A so no-go. Get a Seasonic 520, XFX 520 or Antec HCG 520M instead.

You have 2 - 13 amp 12v rails so it should run it but I would upgrade.

A Radeon HD 6670 needs 17 amps on the 12v rail and a 400 watt PSU.

I recommend this:
