Is an HD5570 with a 250w power supply ok?

I have a slimline computer with a 250w power supply. I don't need a very powerful graphics card, just something better than the onboard one.

Will this card be ok with a 250w power supply?

Thanks

  1. According to Wikipedia, the 5570 needs 39 watts of power at the max, 3 1/4 amps on the +12V rail. Thus, if your PSU has at least 15 amps, you should be fine. You might be able to go with the 5670 at the upper end.

    Thanks but I don't really understand that. Copying from the power supply label it says:


    AC Input

    100-127V ~ 50-60Hz 6.0A
    200-240V ~ 50-60Hz 3.0A

    DC Output

    +5.08V ---16.0A
    +3.3V --- 16.7A
    +12.0V --- 18.0A
    -12.0V --- 0.3A
    +5.08Vsb --- 2.0A


    So does this mean I'm ok?

    Thanks
  3. The 5570 will work on that PSU just fine, provided you don't overclock anything. The 5670 is the most powerful video card you'll be able to get. Regardless, don't overclock.
