It probably will not handle any current video card. That's not to say that maybe you couldn't find an older card that would work with your psu, perhaps an older pci. I doubt it will have the performance you are looking for though. Power supplies are fairly inexpensive so upgrading it usually doesn't kill your wallet and it's a good place to plan for the future also. The more steady power you have the better. Hope that helps.

4670 is rated for only 59 watts max. It's a very efficient card.
