You should be able to run all that; the 5670 uses a Max of 75w being a pcie only card and I can't imagine the rest of your system using over 150w. Gaming..... light gaming and don't count on a high resolution and you should be OK. If your psu fails its always good to upgrade but should work for now
what would your budget be for an upgrade?

It depends on your resolution and gaming needs. What resolution are you playing on

Also I'd run at least a piix4 955 or i3 2100 with a 5770/6850 to run well on medium and some high.

You will be fine with the setup you previously stated with that psu. The only issue I'd see is it isn't a reputable brand so it might not have a true 400w output but in your case you'd need 230w at most so you're good

That psu is really about 280w as per the manufacturer info provided.op will use about 200w. It will be fine

Okie Dokie, When the op's rig takes a crap you are to blame.

Its op's choice to not upgrade, I would recommend getting a cx430 or 380w ew..... but he wants to know if it will run on that psu... and it will. I'm sure after the things we've covered he is well aware that he needs a reputable brand but in the meantime it should be able to supply that low amount of power
