Couple of weeks ago my intel hd graphics completly stopped working on games, i have decided to buy a graphics card "SAPPHIRE AMD Radeon HD 6670 2GB GDDR3" as a result of this need a new psu at the moment i have a this one:

Internal 300W (100V-240V)
Form factor: Internal ATX
Total wattage: 300W
Nominal input voltage range: 200-240V/3A (50-60Hz)
Dimensions: 150mm x 140mm x 86mm (5.9 x 5.5 x 3.4 inches

As you can see that wont be up to the job of running a graphics card because i have Intel Core i3 2120 to run on it. what would be the best psu for the job it needs to be cheap and reliable.

Thanks in advance.

6670, about 60 watts max ( Furmark )

Basic I3-2100 system ( 1 HD, 1 OD, 2x4g Ram, 2 fans ) about 70 watts from the wall ( Prime 95, my Killawatt meter, that's about 60 watts DC after the conversion )
You have to be running a hell of a lot of peripherals to require more than a 300 watt psu
