So i just purchased a Sapphire Hd 4670 512MB GDDR3 card for my dell inspiron 530 and i would like to know how far could i push this card with a 350w psu since the recommended wattage is 400w but ive heard you can run it on a 300w psu.

I wouldn't overclock in a dell case, or on a 350w psu.

I dont plan on overclocking it but i just dont want to be playing a game on max settings (like crysis for example) and having my card overheat

Oh thats what you meant, just make sure you turn the fan all the way up when you game you will be fine as long as you don't overclock.

you won't even break 250w (even if you had an OC i7 CPU) plus your 25a on the 12v is more then enough for your entire system. You can over clock that card with no issue, just don't expect a great FPS increase.
