I've has experience upgrading PC's pretty much the same as yours. I managed to fit a GTX 465 in one and a 6870 in the other, upgraded the PSU in both in order to power those cards. The one i linked to above is quite short so it will fit and consumes 66W which means it can be powered by the PCIe slot on your motherboard. This means you won't have to upgrade your PSU.
I like that! It's not to old either lol. So simply the power coming from the PCI-E lane is gonna handle this? Even with just a 350W? Seems a little iffy.

The PCI-E lane is able to provide up to 75W of power, this graphics card has a max tdp of 66W so you should be fine.

Here's a review i've found of it

Wow very good find Kieran. TYVM! I may just go with this card! Are all 6670's powered by the PCI-E lane though? I found one 6670 in particular I could get for 58.99 after rebate, what's your feelings on this one?

Or am I well better off going with the ASUS 6670? I know ASUS makes good quality stuff.

I'd just wait until you got a job man.

Keep looking here every 20 minutes every day around 3-6 pst time. You can land a perfectly good HD 6850 for $100. Best deal you can get and you can run it at stock clocks on that psu with your system.

I'm reading a lot of specs saying the 6850 needs about a 450w-500w PSU

You should be fine, download this and fill out your specs.

Lol I was just throwing specs together as you posted this According to the calculator, the 6670 will require 325w on my system. If i use a 6850 it will need a 375w PSU. I would assume that may cause some problems is I use a 6850 then? The 6670 seems like a safe route though. Also I noticed the 6850 is much larger, I don't think it would fit in this Small case

As far as i know all 6670's are powered by the PCI-E lane. I would recommend the ASUS 6670, from the reviews i've seen it performs better than the XFX version as shown in the chart below.


The benchmarks in the above chart were run at a resolution of 1680x1050. Your sig says you have a 16" monitor so you should get similar or better performance.
