How will this stuff work in my PC?

So i rushed into buying a computer (sadly) and want to upgrade the PSU and Graphics, just to run games. I dont care about running them on ultra settings, just mid level and run smoothly. (Mainly MMO games).

my comp is : http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?objectID=c02481325&lang=en&cc=us&taskId=101&contentType=SupportFAQ&prodSeriesId=4269976&prodTypeId=12454

I had these in mind.

  1. That power supply is terrible i recommend you don't buy it.
    The 6670 doesn't require external power.
    I'd order the card and try it out first.
    You might not need a psu.
    If you do experience issues with the card then it indicates you'll need a better psu.
  2. My current PSU is only 250w though. Dosent seem like enough.

    Well your cpu is relatively low power 65W = I doubt your full system is using 150W max.
    The 6670 doesn't require auxillary power.
    Quality low cost psu's.

    What is your monitor resolution?
  5. 1920x1080 max

    60hz

    The 6670 wont do for this resolution. You have to get at least a 6770 to have decent graphics performance at 1920x1080. But if you can not afford it, you can go as low as a 6750 which could be as cheap as a HD 6670 but with higher performance.

    The PSU's you listed all have only 1 PCIe power connector. It will support the HD5770/6770 which also require only 1 PCIe power connector. But bear in mind there is not much room for upgrade later on a ~400-450W PSU.
  7. Thanks, one more thing i need to get straight.

    My case is a mid size atx, motherboard has a 24 pin connection ( currently using 20). An ATX12v will fit and work correct?
  8. Sure. In fact, the ATX12v is the ideal PSU for your motherboard which as you mentioned have 24 pin connections.

    That's correct,modern units have 20+4 main power connectors.
    The units i listed will power better gpu's like the 5770/6770 in your system.
