it can, but you would be stretching it really thin, especially if ur running something older than Ivy Bridge thats consuming more power.

Check the calculator on their website to see if it can

however I recommend the Corsair TX650 to run the GTX 670 flawlessly with headroom for anything else you might wanna add in the future (If you might wanna go SLI some time in the future, get the TX750)

Cheers

I strongly advise against saving on a PSU or limiting its budget. its the most important component in your computer. I will not talk about the future disability of adding more hardware or overclocking, but you should be aware with unreliable power you will get random slow downs and blue screens, with a chance of permanent hardware damage, even if you can replace hardware later, you might not be able to recover data if your hard failed.

I lost an entire machine with 2 hards (500 GBs of data ;'( ) because of an unreliable PSU. Try not to make the same mistake.

Good luck
