You will definitely need a new power supply to run that card. But you do have a nice i7-920 in there.

If you are willing to spend the money on the 670, I would save some and go for the 660Ti, so you have money for a new power supply.

All of the power supplies listed by robjordy would be perfect. Usually the 660Ti comes with Borderlands 2 as well.

Hey! Thanks a lot Robjordy and Deemo13, really! i apreciated the answers!!!

i was thinking just after post, the power supply issue.

the 2 slot of spaces that use the graphic card is not a problem for the cabinet, right? and the graphic card fits in the pci expres 16x slot. but, any kind of power supply fits in the cabinet?

i can buy the graphic card and the power supply. i have enough money for those two things.

thanks for the answers!!!

in the pc:

have a ati radeon hd6950, with a length of 10.6 in (27cm).

the geforce gtx 670 has a length of 9.5 in (24 cm).

which means, that the geforce apparently fix in the cabinet!

in fact, i take a piece of paper with the size of the graphic card, and see if it fits, and apparently fits, but i need to take away the hard drive, otherwise it wont fits.

so i have a doubt, i don't know if the width will touch the 4 sata port in.
anyone try to put this graphic card on this cabinet???

thanks for help me (and any other dell xps 435 user) with this issue!
