Hey guys i'm pretty new to PC gaming so if this sounds like a ''noob'' question then so be it. I am looking to upgrade my graphics card from a AMD radeon hd 6670 to a AMD radeon hd 6870, AMD FX 4100 (3.6GHz) i have a 500W power supply and im wondering if im going to need more. Here are more specific details on my specs (scroll down to details in the link)

The AMD FX 4100 is a processor, not a graphics card.

Anyway, it depends on the wattage that everything else takes up. Add it all up, add 100 or so for overhead, and that's how much you need. I got that from here, a pretty good resource on PC building and pertinent information.

Yeah i know that, i just forget to caption that part. Thanks for the link it's pretty helpfull! I
