Hi, I have a compaq CQ5210Y. It comes with a 250w PSU. If I wanted to upgrade the Graphics card to a Radeon 5670. Will the current PSU suffice or do I need a more powerful one?

The Mother Board is a M2N68-LA (Narra5)

Computer has 3g of RAM
CPU is an AMD Athlon II X2 215


Link to computer specifications

If my PSU is underpowered for that card, what is the best GPU I can get with a 250w PSU

You probally can run it as its not a very power consuming card, THOUGH its best to maybe buy a good power supply to keep safe and so you dont have to worry like this every time you wana buy a graphics card.

Yes, but not the latest games. I usually play games a few years old. When they go on sale on STEAM.

So would I be safer using the 5570?
