Would this GPU work with this PSU?

Would that XFX 6670 work with that 300W PSU posted above. AMD says it needs 400W but the review on this site (and many others) says a whole PC including this GPU only uses 124W at max.

Could you please advise me whether they will work together?

    Well, I know this is useless to you, as it doesn't answer your question, but if you plan on buying that GPU I would advise you get this instead: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814141126. It beats the 6670 in benchmarks, as you can see here: http://www.hwcompare.com/10884/radeon-hd-5750-1gb-vs-radeon-hd-6670-oem-1gb/

    Thank you for the suggestion but I am building a PC with an AMD A8 and am going to use dual graphics mode with the 6670, any higher 6XXX GPU won't work.

    Unfortunatly due to a few errors, all parts are on their way except the case and the PSU.
  3. I don't know dude, that is cutting it VERY close. I would bump up the PSU to at least 450 watt, with only a 300 watt PSU your PC would probably fry itself due to little to no power. The 6670 probably uses little power when it is idle doing nothing, say your looking at your desktop. However when you start to play games it requires more power as it is working harder. So probably no, it wouldn't. If you don't give a PC enough power then the PSU can fry, along with other parts.
