  1. Whats your budget ?
  2. How much watts does the PSU have?
  3. The fastest card you can handle without upgrading your PSU is an ATI HD56/6670. Anything after that, your 350W PSU will not handle it.

  4. Ok, so now I'm thinking about getting the ATI HD 6670 but the recommended PSU is 400W, mine is only 350W. Will my computer be able to handle it?
  5. Yea but they just put 400W there because they want to make sure all PSU work. Your PSU should be fine I think. Here Is why I say that:
