I currently bought a 1gb sapphire 5670 video card and I am not sure if it will run on a hp 250w psu.
AMD Athlon ii x4 email@example.comGhz @95w
2x2gb ddr2 sdram
seagate 1tb 7200 rpm
250w power supply
Everything is stock bought from Best Buy for $420
well i tried it out to see if it worked and it works perfectly! downloaded the latest driver and i refreshed my wei score and went from 3.9 to 7.0 and 3.3 to 7.0. also im not sure how but it upped my ram score from 5.9 to 7.3. so i guess im lucky this time and ill see what happens in the next week. Thanks btw
I would go with the 5670 because it is noticeably faster than the 430 in some games, plus it has a better bandwidth on it. I got mine on ebay for $71 on an auction and so far my computer started up and is still running with the new drivers installed on a 250psu. I probably would get a 500+ psu because theyre fairly cheap (get a brand name psu). But if you really do not want to upgrade your psu, buy the card, slide it in, and see if your computer starts up. if it doesnt then your going to have to buy a new psu. If it does then youre in luck. But ive heard that after a while the psu dies out from overload (1-3 years) but right now im just glad it works and hope yours does too. Good luck.
