In spite of all of this I was wondering if my computer could handle the HD 6670 Gddr5 card. Thanks. I'm not much of a heavy gamer but I would like to play games like Batman Arkam City or Lego Batman. I design a lot if it matters. Just worried if my system could take the HD 6700 without causing damage in the long run or short run.

According to this:
^It can take it, but I just want to make sure.

Is there any other lower recommendation cards that would be on the safer side? Or is the HD 6670 safe?

  1. What is you maximum power supply wattage? Could you find out what is the current (A) in the +12V rail?
  2. Input Voltage 100-127 VAC/200-240VAC
    Input Frequency 50/60 Hz
    Input current 9A (3A)/4.5A

    300 W PSU
    Single slot cards are the only option I guess for me.
    I was looking into the XFX HD667XZHF3 Radeon HD 6670 Graphic Card - 800 MH, but if the gddr5 and the ddr3 take up the same amount of wattage, then I would rather go with the gddr5.

  3. 12 volt max current is 18 amps (216 watts/12 volts).
  4. I'm pretty noob to the whole voltage thing. Any suggestions?
  5. LoL wow what a coincidence!!!!, I just got finished upgrading my dell 530 with an HIS 6670 1gb DDR5 card. I don't know what dell model you had, but mine was pretty old. Inspiron 530 with a g33m motherboard. Q6600. I bought a Antec 430W power supply and a HIS HD 6670 1gb ddr5. Power supply is working like a charm. My windows experience rating has gone up to 5.5 with the new card.

    I'm getting skyrim in the mail today, So i guess that will be the ultimate test whether I done everything correctly. Good luck with yours my friend!!!
  6. How can you tell if your desktop is compatible with a psu? I was looking into the Antec Basiq BP500U 500W ATX12V Power Supply
