i did a search and found nothing. I have a Thermaltake TR2 W0070RUC 430W ATX12V V2.2 power supply and was wondering if it has enough power for XFX HD-667X-ZHF3 Radeon HD 6670 video card?

your psu according to newegg.com is 65% efficent which means 0.65*430=279.5 watt on the xfx website they says it need a 400watt psu to run so u should be fine and on reviews pepole says that they are using it on 350watt psu also so according to the website u will be pretty fine with this psu see this website it says ati 6670 only needs 63watt to run

You don't work out the efficiency like that for example a 500w 80% efficient power supply should output 500W and take 625W from the wall while a 500W 60% efficient power supply should still output 500W but will take 769W from the wall. Your power supply can output 349W (which is what it should be labelled at) & at that load is 70% efficient and draws 498W from the wall.

okay thanks for the replys! I am thinking about getting the XFX HD-667X-ZHF3 Radeon HD 6670 video card just hoping my power supply can handle that!
