Upgrading...

Hey guys, This is my pre built system:
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Produ [...] 6883109038

Its a COMPAQ Presario CQ5210F

here is some info:

CPU - AMD Athlon II X2 215

MOBO - PEGATRON CORPORATION NARRA5 5.00

Graphics - NVIDIA GeForce 6150 SE Integrated Graphics

Im pretty sure it's got a 250W power supply.

I want to add in a Radeon HD 6670 so i can play better games at higher settings.

Here are some benchmarks of the card:

is a 250W psu enough? will i experience bottlenecks?

OH i almost forgot, I'll me playing games at 1336x768 (My max resolution) on my Compaq VGA monitor. I don't mind playing at 1024x768 either.

How much fps can i expect to get for games like Diablo 3, Black light retribution, etc?

Thanks.

More about upgrading
  1. 250w is not enough hd 6670 400 Watt or greater power supply recommended
  2. ^ to be safe you need to invest 25-40 bucks for power supply
    corsair cx430 or xfx 550 is very good choice

    if not, you will be gambling with your PC longetivity
  3. Will this PSU be fine?
    its a Antec Basiq VP450 450W Power Supply
