The monitor does not draw power from the power supply. The monitor draws power from the wall outlet (mains).

I ran into trouble with a ati 3650 and a 103w prescott with an earthwatts 380w...
They stay calm until you really do something, and there is no stopping a failure. vrms melt at 175c....

the hd is no problem, unless the bizarre excuse for encoding like you tube and vimeo etc etc. big power needed strangely. a disc is nothing, local play no problems...
I would get bigger power apfc asap.

A 4670 only needs about 70 watts. You should be fine.
