Hi guys,

The "ATI RADEON HD4670 512MB" card on my Dell XPS 435MT died recently. I am looking for a replacement but do not want to upgrade my PSU since I will be buying a new machine later this year. Any recommendation for a compatible low power graphics card ? here are my machine specs:


Studio XPS 435MT, Intel Core i7-920 processor(8MB L2 Cache 2.66GHz)
6GB DDR3 SDRAM at 1067MHz
ATI RADEON HD4670 512MB

Thanks in advance.

ATI 5670, AMD 6570 & 6670 all draw similar power with better performance

It looks like the ATI 5670 is an older model. I am going to either go with 6570 or 6670. The 6670 draws more power than 6570 under load but it is apparently more cooler. So I am leaning towards 6670. The price of Sapphire brand (1 GB DDR3) is same on Amazon. Fyi, the PSU on my computer is 360W. I suppose, it if supported 4670 for three years then it will be fine with either 6570 or 6670.

360w is plenty since you won't break 225w with any of the cards mentioned.

fyi, I ended up buying Sapphire Radeon HD 6570 1 GB DDR3. I installed it few days ago and it is working fine so far.
