Do any of you know if a HIS HD6670 will work on Optiplex 980 MT's 305watt Power supply?
Reference ATI HD6670 version is the standard video card you can get with Optiplex 990 MT
It seems Optiplex 980 and Optiplex 990 seem to have almost the same power supplies.

Can anyone help me.
Dell Optiplex 980 only has the 305 watt power supply so i cant upgrade to any other power supplies
right now i have Asus EAH5670 connected to my Optiplex 980. working great. but i want to get the best PCI-E powered card out there.

help will be really appreciated.

Old question but maybe will help someone if i try to answer it. HD 6670 don't need extra power. It means power from PCIe slot is enough for this card. Someone reported that works fine with 280W. Here is a <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...">link</a>.Read Feedback section, please.

Farewell!

Sure. 6670 will work fine. Although 6670 is the best card that does not required PCI-e power connector, is almost identical with the 5670 with just some new features & perhaps 1-2 fps better performance. So it will not be worth it to replace your 5670 with a 6670.
