You should be OK, as that card does not need any external power connectors.

Should be fine. It's just too bad you can't overclock the CPU, well at least not without a BIOS mod.

a simple way of doing it is by taking the one that is in there out and just replace the one with it, ex, u take the old one out and in the same way insert the new one. simple!

also if i ever need a power supply
will this fit?? or if you guys have better suggestion.. (try to keep the price low<3)

that power supply looks very cheesy... i wouldnt trust something that powers your entire system below 50 dollars.. id get a NAME brand PSU, such as Thermaltake, Antec, Corsair, ect. those ones have a rep. for being sturdy(well the majority) ;) ..

ohh any suggestions for NAMED brand psu that is around 500W for 30~40dollars?

Very basic PSUs that will get the job done for most single GPU solutions:

In the 500 watt range, there are very few power supplies that will fit those criteria and remain under $50. Your best bet for that are is this . It's made by Antec, a reputable company, is modular, and supports crossfire. In addition, it has plenty of power at 550 watts.
Rambo suggested this , and said it was good. I don't know much about Raidmax, but I'm sure he knows his stuff.

omgosh thanks guys<3 i'll try if my powersupply can handle that graphic card first and if not i guess i'll just have to get a powersupply ...

thanks very much<3

it probably could handle it. the 4670 is a very low power card. if you have a 350W, you could even get away with the 4670 m8.
worth a try, but still, safe to upgrade your PSU to something more sturdy;)
