  1. Yes, here's an article on power consumption:

    Although you could probably handle an HD 5670 or 6670, which would be a superior experience. Since its an OEM power supply, it is probably pretty weak and its not advisable to run it at max output.

    I would give some consideration to getting a new power supply.

    Thanks for the reply. Yeah, I will consider. So will it run?
  3. A GT 220?
  4. ^ I mean is there similar Graphics cards that i can run smoothly.
  5. The GT 220 will run on your existing power supply. Since you do not say what game you are playing or at what resolution or what the rest of your system specs are it is hard to say what, if anything will run smoothly.
  6. I will be playing a bit of Modern Warfare 2.

    I guess I have a crappy pc.

    Processor: Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU 5300@ 2.60GHz 2.60 GHz
    RAM: 4.00GB
    System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
    Resolution: 1600x900
    Motherboard: Pegatron Corporation Model: Evans
    Chipset: Intel G41 Express Chipset
  7. ^Is the above enough?
  8. Overall your PC could be worse. That GT 220 is not going to be great but it will be a pretty big step up from the integrated graphics you have now.
  9. Thank you to everyone that replied. I guess I will be going for the HD 6450.
