Hello, I'm in the UK and I am going to upgrade my computer's graphics card and power supply. The only thing that I'm not sure is whether the 6670 and the PSU will be compatible with my computer. Will I bottleneck anything? Can you please help me and maybe give a detailed answer?

My PC Specs:

i3-2120 @ 3.3 GHz
Motherboard: H-CUPERTINO2-H61-uA TX (Cupertino2)
8GB Memory
1TB HDD
Integrated graphics
300w stock PSU

Hi,

Maybe you can run the 6670 or even better the HD 7750 ( better than the 6670 ) without changing the psu.

Do you know the amps on the +12V rail ?

Don't know about the budget and the purpose ( gaming ? ) but with the ocz you can get a much better card than the 6670/7750.

Are you talking about the amps on the +12V rail in OCZ?

And I already chose the radeon 6670, so I can't change it, sorry.

Also, do you know how much wattage my whole computer will use with the radeon 6670 and without the OCZ?

The purpose is gaming.

No the amps on the old psu, the ocz i can find on the net. Yours are probaly mentioned on a label on the side of the psu. But if you can't cancel the order there is no need to look actually.

To bad you can't change it anymore, why not anyway, you can always cancel an order can't you ? Assuming you play on 1920x1080 or something like that, the 7750 would be really better http://www.hwcompare.com/11733/radeon-hd-6670-oem-1gb-v...

Total power use is something like 194-198W http://www.geeks3d.com/20110516/tested-asus-radeon-hd-6... http://www.anandtech.com/show/4278/amds-radeon-hd-6670-...

Thanks for helping but could you maybe answer these questions?

Is this graphics card and power supply compatible with my computer? (I have windows 7)

Does my motherboard support these two things?

If I install them, will they work?
