Hi, I am wondering if you could add a Radeon HD 6870 into a PC with a 460W PSU. I've heard people saying that Dell PSU's are good, and that is what I have, so that could influence things. The other specs of PC are:
Intel Core i7 3770 - 3.4 GHz 8 GB Dual Channel 1600 MHz DDR3 Current GFX card is AMD Radeon 7570 1GB GDDR5 Not sure about motherboard or fans.
If you can't add one, could you recommend a card that would work? I read that that card could play most games on Ultra, so that is why I wanted it.

yea you should be ok with that powersupply for the 6870....amd recommends a 500 watt psu minimum for the card but you will be fine with a 460 watt unit
To be absolutely sure, try to find the 12V rail(s) current rating (amps) for your PSU, it should be on a big sticker on the side.
It's also worth noting that a 7850 should use less power (I think), the new gens are more efficient, so don't shy away from getting the newer cards because of your PSU.
