Can my computer handle an HIS 4670?

Hi im new here and i was just wondering if my computer could handle the HIS 4670 as in the power supply.

My computer is currently the Gateway GT5670 and i was hoping if i dont upgrade my PSU will it still work? If i do, can you provide a cheap but quality worth PSU? Heres a link to my computer:

  1. I don't see anything on the page that says anything about your power supply. Can you open the case and post the wattage, and the amperage on the 12v?

    I cant at the moment but I am able to do it tommorow, all i know is its at 300watt PSU
  3. yes, it can handle the 4670
  4. YES It can handle a 4670 video card :)

    But i suggest instead of getting a 4670 video card, go for the
    4770 512MB GDDR 5 instead. Though a bit more pricey but I can
    assure you for a 30 dollar price-to-performance difference is
    really worth it. The 4770 is much faster than 4830 and performs
    the same as the high end 4850 model.
  5. I wouldn't bet on that Power Supply being good enough.

    If you do keep this PSU unit and add the HD4670 you should run a gaming benchmark in a loop to stress the system for a few hours. It's better to know up front if you have a power supply issue.

    Would i need to change the PSU then?
  7. It's fine. You would probably be ok with a 4770 also.

    I just opened my case and it says +12v1/18a +12v2/18a -12v/8.3a is it fine?
