For the GTX 670 FTW it has this under PSU requirements: Minimum of a 500 Watt power supply. (Minimum recommended power supply with +12 Volt current rating of 30 Amps.) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I have a 500 watt PSU, but I have no clue how to find out the +12 Volt and amp thing. This is my PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Would these work together?

It should work fine as long as you don't do any crazy OC, at the factory clocks, the card should run fine.

+3.3V@25A, +5V@25A, +12V1@18A, +12V2@18A, -12V@0.3A, +5VSB@2.5A

is the rails, according to this it has an actual peak 12v rail at 432w(36 amps). if it were new, technically it should work, but aging does kick in, and its something i cant recommend using to the fullest.

i guess I could sell my xfx 6870 and my PSU to get the GTX 670 and a 750 watt or something. Do people buy used parts though lol?

people only buy used parts if its a good part and is significantly lower in price.(close to at least 60% of its original purchased price at the least)

You don't need a 750W PSU a good reliable 600-650W would be more than enough even with your CPU overclocked and the 670 OC a 600-650W would be fine allot say 550W is good enough though i personally wouldn't skimp like that because i overclock everything including my ram lol if your not sick like me with oc everything then a XFX or Seasonic 550W should work fine for you .P.S. XFX PSU are made by Seasonic

Only like a ten or twenty dollar difference for an extra 100 watt, so i might as well get a 750.
