New Graphics Card For Dell Inspiron 580s

I was looking to get this card for my computer but wanted to know if it would work

Amazon.com: HIS Radeon HD 6670 1GB (128bit) GDDR5 HDMI DVI-D (HDCP) VGA PCI Express X16 2.1 Low Profile Graphics Cards H667FN1G: Computers & Accessories

On this site it says that the card and computer only used 200 watts durring testing

The card should fit no problem. The power supply on the other hand may not be up to it. The HD 6670 isn't necessarily a power hungry card (average around 67W at load) but if your Dell has the stock 300W power supply in it, it may not work.

By specs, it comes with a 250W PSU, mine says that, but open the case and look at the PSU. I did and mine said 125W.
