My computer is an Advent DT2111, its specifications are here:

The specifications for the Nvidia Geforce 670 are here:

Please give me an answer soon as I need this information for a Christmas gift! Cheers!

P.S. If I can't get an Nvidia Geforce 670, what's the next best thing I can get?

Those specs say nothing about the power supply, please check the brand and model and post it here

I'd rather say build your PC yourself.
That PC isn't perfect for a specific thing.

I think it's too late for that. I believe he already owns that pc but wants to get a better graphics card for it.


OP as csf60 said we know nothing about the power supply in your pc. My guess would be that it is not enough for a Gtx 670, but I could be wrong.

That PSU won't be able to Handle GTX 670 for sure. Because the Computer is Optimized for Radeon 6670 not for High-end Card.

I do already have the PC (apologies for not specifying). What can I do about the PSU and how much would it cost, Sumukh_Bhagat?

Ok, update everyone:

Thanks for your help, but if I could just borrow your excellently superior technological minds for one more question, that'd be great.

I have accepted that my computer is vastly inferior to one that could run a GTX 670 without crying for someone to put it out of its misery. I have instead opted for a GTX 570, but if that's the same case please let me know. Same PC of course, but here are the specs for a 570:

I do plan on buying a 600W PSU, so with that in mind, will that be enough?

Get a decent one with minimum 500W

the 570 uses more energy than the 670. Don't do that, stick with the 670 and the 600W PSU and you will be fine

Cheers csf60 but unfortunately it turns out that my PC has just one graphics card slot. It should be able to handle an AMD Radeon 6850, right? I've heard it's single slot.

Get GTX 670 and Corsair 600w PSU.

GTX 570 is Old, Power Consumer, Less powerful, Less features...

The 670 only needs 1 slot, its just 2 slots wide as most good gpu's are.
You i5 , though not a gaming monster, will still game just fine and not hold back a 670.
You dont need 600w of power since you cant overclock your cpu so If a good 450-500w psu will save you some bucks then go for it. A high end 670 can draw 200w and your motherboard about another 120
