It should, just remember to uninstall nvidia drivers before upgrade and disable on board graphics in bios on power-up after install.

It might work, can't be 100% sure with OEM-motherboards. My girlfriend's 2007 Packard Bell PC (different motherboard then yours, but still similar) won't take HD 5xxx cards, it does however work with HD 4xxx cards and I even got a Nvidia GT 440 to work. Since your motherboard at least still has support there might be a BIOS update for it that makes it work with newer graphics cards, so if the HD 5670 doesn't work at first, try the latest BIOS update, if that doesn't work just get a GT 440.

Thanks for answers! After all, I bought some SAPPHIRE HD 4670 1GB DDR3 PCI-E card, though. I hope it works.

Now the only thing that's bothering me is if my power supply is powerful enough. I was a bit too hasty and I checked the whole thing just after I had bought the card. My computer


has 300W power supply and it requires 400W. However, I checked some other forums and some people say that it should still work.

The HD 4670 consumes about 47w of power under typical gaming conditions. An average quality 300w PSU should be able to handle it.

I would have went with the HD 5670 since it is about 20% faster and consumes less power at about 29w.

You're right but although those two were sold at the same pretty low price (44,00€ = 38.85£ = 62.92$) on a Finnish ebay-like site the HD5670 was sold without install CD and manual so I chose the other one. Besides, after GeForce 6150SE it probably feels like being in heaven anyway. Thanks for information and those charts, though! :)
