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:

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?

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.

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?

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?
