Hi. I am going to buy an XFX Radeon HD5670 (512 Mb GDDR5) and i was wondering if i need a new PSU.

My current system specs are as follows:

AMD Athlon X2 4000 @2.1 Ghz
2 Gb DDR2-800 RAM
Windows Vista 32 Bit
250W PSU

will my psu be able to run the graphics card? thanks.

I agree you'll likely be stressing that old PSU to or beyond it's limits. Also, that's an excellent recommendation, Jonny.

Something like this might also suffice if money is extremely tight:

Cooler master, at least to my understanding is a pretty reliable on psu's. Either one will be fine. Just something for future reference, when purchasing a psu, always look at the specs and see if the rating is continuous(output will always be what it's rated for) or maximum (what the psu can reach randomly for all intensive purposes) with it's continuous usually alot lower than this

Go to atleast a 450w psu.

thanx 4 all the responses. i also thought a 250W psu wasn't gonna cut it. as for the recomendations, i live in Canada, but ive already found a cheap 600W psu that i'll use with a gts 250 (my budget increased after my birthday).
