The part that matters in the motherboard. You did not include that.

The two most important things are your power supply, how many amps on its 12v and does your motherboard have a pci express port or is it old agp. Check your motherboard manual or open the case and look at the slots on the motherboard, blue slots are generally pci express, brown is agp.

Ill have to check the power draw on the hd6570 but that seems like a very poor power supply to be honest

Ok, a system with that graphics card needs 19amps under full load and that's a barebones system (one Hdd,one CD drive, one stick of ram, no fans) so if your system is similar you'll have around 4 to 5 Amps spare with that psu. It depends on the quality of the psu in the end.
You also need to remember that 12v1 is probably reserved for the cpu only which leaves you with 12v2 of 14amps for everything else. (ive been reading up on psu's a lot lately)

I'd be inclined to advise you to get a better psu, even AMD website says 400watt psu minimum for that graphics card. Its up to you.
