Hello
I wanted to take a graphic card. I decided to take Raedon HD 5670 1gb.
I think my psu is not capable of handling it... i saw that 230v is written on my psu.I have a 6pin connector. I don't know much about this things but i got to know that i have a 6pin connector by software cpuid... can you please suggest me way in which i can .
I have also got something like this from my computer by the same software

Hardware monitor Nuvoton NCT6776
Voltage 0 0.89 Volts [0x6F] (CPU VCORE)
Voltage 1 1.12 Volts [0x8C] (VIN1)
Voltage 2 3.36 Volts [0xD2] (AVCC)
Voltage 3 3.36 Volts [0xD2] (3VCC)
Voltage 4 1.05 Volts [0x83] (VIN4)
Voltage 5 1.03 Volts [0x81] (VIN5)
Voltage 6 1.05 Volts [0x83] (VIN6)

When you tell us what the make and model of your power supply is, we can tell you if it's good enough to power a 5670......

How much watt it has means nothing. It's the amps on the 12v rail and what temp the ratings are taken at....which is why we need to know the make and model.

A generic 750w psu MIGHT put out 500w if your really lucky. A quality 750w psu put's out a real 750w+.

Oh and it's the side of the psu, not the back.

@geekapproved oh sh** i forgot to write there how many amps on 12v because watt means nothing and the power is most important.

Open the side of the case. You should see a label on the PSU.
