You'd best look for a different gpu, as even if the psu could power it(it can't), the cpu is way to weak to provide any benefit. If you end up getting a new psu and plop in the rx470, you will just have a miserable time stuttering every 5 seconds.

If you already own the rx 470, best to save up for a new system or just sell it and pick up a more conservative card.

Other options are 750TI 2 GB - RX 460 4 GB ... guess what both are at the same price ... the 470 is like 20 % more expensive this is why i want to buy it

The rx 460 might run on that psu if it's slot powered with no external pci-e connections.

If you really want a rx 470, you should get a better psu AND upgrade your cpu to something like a i5 760, granted, if your motherboard supports it.

k might try to get the RX 460 ... though i can get away with the 470 since sites like techpowerup recommend a 350 PSU for it .

what is your current Graphics card ? and what kind of games do you intend to run ? i used to own a similar PSU like that in 2006 although it ran mostly fine in its prime it did exhibit odd behaviours with some users and caused them system damage
I wouldn't trust this PSU at all at this point of time ,I wouldnt invest any new hardware into it unless i am buying it dirt cheap from the used market. and willing to accept the risk that it may fail and take one of my components with it

I have a feeling you are from Egypt , if you are send me a PM , I havemy old Seasonic S12 520w although its an old design but its very decent PSU for that price range
