Despite the similar numbering those cards are unrelated. The HD4730 is based on a different processor and is both weaker and much less power efficient than the 40nm HD4770.
That PSU can probably handle an HD4770 but it looks sketchy so I'm not going to say it's 100% certain.

I mean it's an off brand. Power supplies that aren't made by respected manufacturers often have specifications that are entirely unreliable. If the specifications on that chart are in fact what the unit can handle than you should have no problems but that's a big if.

a hec 500w should cost the same as a corsair cx400. go get the latter.

The PSU looks like it has 24amps on the 12v rails.
A 4770 uses less power than a 4830, and I've seen people run 4830s or 9800GTs (same power consumption) on PSUs with 24amp Dell PSUs.

So it probably could handle it...depending on the age but who knows about capacitor aging, etc?

Hey Jeffery,

What you need is a cheap GPU and another gig of ram. Get a 4670 and use whatever is left over to start saving for the ram.
Until then turn your antivirus and anything else that uses system resources off when you are gaming.
