Hello There, Welcome To Geeks To Go,

Hope This Helps.

Are we to assume this is your PSU you are referencing?
If so by any standards of today this is so under powered it is scary.
Have you checked the power requirements of the video card you referenced?
In my repairing, building and volunteering here I would never advise the use of a PSU that low in anything. The components now will over load a PSU that size with no problem.
I know others will say the video card may not use that but count in the use of the Mobo, Hard drive or hard drives, optical player, CPU and any USB devices you have and that PSU is a crash just waiting to happen.

No way. It is not likely you can find one over 1500W, at not one that runs on 115VAC.

180W is a common size for low profile, entry level PSUs. Therefore, your suggestion to go with a 6670, which has a minimum PSU requirement of 400W (450 minimum suggested) would have put the OP in a significant bind. :(

Not to mention as i said before the possibility of over powering the PSU and possible fire danger. My next reply is to the original poster and what I would like to see is a list of specs on your system.
If name brand what make and model
Is it a flat desktop unit or a tower?

If so can you explain how it was resolved so others may be able to fix it if they have the same issue.
If not please let us know and we can continue with helping you to resolve the issue.
