HD4670 Graphics Card on 300W power

Hi I would really like to get the HD4670 card (my old Nvidia7500broke)broke but I only have a 300wCPU. I don't want to go to the effort and cost of replacing the power supply. My computer spec is a Compaq Presario SR2149UK Intel Core2 6400 2038.

Thanks

  1. Get a 4650 instaed, the HD4670 draws too much power for my liking on a 300W PSU.
  2. what the cooze said, although there are some very good 300w PSU out there that can run the 4670.
  3. thanks Coozie and CT, would I definately be ok with the 4650 then?
  4. I have a 4670 running on a 300 watt dell(shitty) psu with an e6600 and it has never given me any issues. i was worried about it at first but all seems well after about two and a half months. i dont know about the long term. 12v rail (its a single rail) never goes below 11.97v. seems okay
  5. the Dell 300w is one of the few solid pre-built system PSU out there that can run it.

    In fact it can run a 9800GT/4830

    smithy, you will be fine with the 4650 (make sure you get the GDDR3 model)
  6. A decent 300W PSU should be o.k., but yeah that may be stressing it a little. If you're worried about it, then get a 9500GT as those don't use up too much power as it uses less than a 4650 and isn't too bad on the lower end of things.
