  1. One of my coworkers ordered this today for his Dell. His 300W PSU died. It will handle your 4670.

    HD4670 will run on a 300watt PSU. The whole system will consume about the same the system in this benchmark with HD5670 http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-hd-5550-radeon-hd-5570-gddr5,2704-14.html
