Any help would be appreciated.

With the power supply only 330 watts, you dont want the TDP of the vid card to go over 150 or so. A 7850 will work. As long as the 670 isn't over 150, it should be fine.

Thanks for the info Marq.
How do i ensure that the TDP stays below 150?
Also how is TDP measured?
Cheers
