Decided to upgrade my GPU. And now i have a question , Can i run HD 5670 with my PSU.

In amd page , i saw HD 5670 reques a 400Watt PSU...


My PSU info :
(Model : ATX-350PNR )

: AC input 220-240v --- 5,A,50Hz
DC output : 350W
+3V --- 20.0A(ORG) +5V-16.0A(RED) + 12V1 - 10.0A (YEL)
+12V2 --- 13.0A(YEL , BLACK) +5Vsb ---- 2.5A(PURP) = 12V --- 0.8A(BLUE)
P.G. SIGNAL (GRAY) , GROUND (BLACK)
(+3.3V & +5V = 130W Max ) (+12V1 & +12V2 = 276W Max)


And if i cant use it , then what do you guys think about HD 5570 with my PSU..

That's a FSP PSU. According to its label, the +12V rails are actually additive (usually they aren't), which means it has 23A. You will have no problem with a HD5670. If you're just looking for the strongest card you can run without a PCIE power connector, get a HD7750.
AMD specifies a 400W PSU for that card in an attempt (often vain) to compensate for all the cheap PSU-shaped objects out there that aren't actually good for what's on their labels.

Yes, a Radeon HD 5670 will work fine with a 350w FSP PSU. As mentioned above, the most powerful video card you can use is the Radeon HD 7750. Supposedly a PCI-e 3.0 card is guaranteed to be 100% backwards compatible will all PCI-e slots including v1.0 and v1.1; unlike PCI-e 2.1 cards which sometimes have trouble with those older slots.

The HD 7750's performance is very close to the performance of the Radeon HD 5770 / HD 6770 (same card). You'll need to run benchmarks to notice that the HD 7750 is slightly slower. But it is priced at about $110.
