got a deal for 5670 DDR5. It will be running @x4 on a 250W PSU, CPU-C2d e4400.
Is it okay to run 5670 on these specs??

UPDATE:- Currently running 9400 GT

gs500 ..wont be req...will provide headroom for overclocking...anyway c2d 4400 will cause bottlenecking in ocing ...so cx430v2 recommended.

hmm.. well, I were thinking that he would overclock so why not leave headroom, I think 430 W is enough, my first suggestion..

what does @4X mean? PCIe X 4 slot?

250W is a bit low even for such a low power GPU. but if it can really provide 16A on the 12V rail, then it can be used without any worry.

Shall i give it a try on my current PSU?

PLEASE google a bit before commenting. Enhance is not a desi PSU manufacturer. they are OEM and makes PSU for the branded PC.

as even most highend GPU can't fully saturate the PCIe X 16 slot, so there is a chance of bottleneck but that shouldn't affect performance in a big way.

yup. go ahead.
