Well for a while it should. For instance I will use my system as an example...I am using a 8600GT 256MB it also requires 350 Watts. Thing is my system (Dell Inspiron) comes stock with 300 watts. So i took a leap of faith and used the card anyway. It ran fine for a long time. Six months to be exact. Nothing went wrong. The only reason why i said six months was because i bought a new PSU just for few upgraded components. TO answer your question TECHNICALLY it should work.

Alrighty.

I was recommended this on another site.

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1202650704648

Only thing i have ever used is geforce, so know nothing about ati or anything.
It looks good to me though, and says 300W requirement.
Review on google said to use this one over the 9400 GT that was posted previously, for gaming.

this is a great deal on a psu and it would allow for video card upgrades in the future OCZ 500w (two 12v rails each w/18a)

actually, IIRC, Ronspc can vouch for it...

Isn't $80 for a 9400GT a bit overpriced?

I would go with Wolvarine's recommended PSU and a HD 4670.

You could try out the 4670 with your current PSU first, it should work fine.

Yeah, the HD 4670 runs fine on my 300W PSU. As long as your CPU isn't uber amazing, it will have enough power.

My CPU is a AMD x2 4000+ 2.11GHz.
