  1. You should be 100% good to go. The HD5670 only draws 61 watts.
  2. yes, u will be good with that card, the 5670 will consume low power and doesn't need additional power connector cable... :)
    Don't forget to disable your onboard 3200.

    No they usually don't. In some cases you can make a hybrid crossfire setup with the onboard card, but that requires some low end discrete cards and will not offer great power for gaming. Go for the 5670 as suggested.
