I want to get a new Graphics card and power supply for my Compaq Presario SR5707c within the next two weeks. My current power supply is 250 watts but I am thinking about upgrading to a 460 watt power supply, and my current graphics card is an Integrated graphics using nVidia GeForce 6150SE, I now know that this card is trash because it is intergrated so it eats my ram, so I was looking at getting the Radeon HD 5570. I have never bought a Graphics Card or a Power Supply before so I have a few Questions.

1. Is the Radeon HD 5570 Compatible with my PC?

2. If its not compatible what is the best Graphics Card for my pc under $80?

3. What other Graphics Cards should I consider?

4. the power supply I planned on getting was a 460 Watt EPS12V-ATX12V for $75, is there a cheaper and better Power Supply for my pc that is compatible with my pc?

5. Is there a Graphics card that will work with my current 250 watt power supply that is better than my current Integrated graphics using nVidia GeForce 6150SE?

I am a new user here and tried to give all the information that is listed in the "How to Ask for Advice about Choosing a New GPU" thread, however if you need more info about my pc you can find it here: http://bizsupport1.austin.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?objectID=c01636221&lang=en&cc=us&taskId=110&contentType=SupportFAQ&prodSeriesId=3823953&prodTypeId=12454

Good Choice and yes it would "work" with the 6670. Most Power supplies and cards are compatible if it had adequate wattage.

On the site it said it has a 20pin+4 so yes it is a 24 pin PSU.
its separate because some motherboards only have 20 pins.
