Hello before I start here is a list of my computer specs and the graphics card im looking to get! 

Computer Specs:

Manufacturer-Acer

Model-Aspire X1420G

Processor-AMD AthlonII X4 645 Processor 3.10GHz

RAM-4GB

System Type-64-bit OS

Other Things- I have a 220Watt PSU, no graphics card (yet), and im hoping to get a Radeon HD 6670

But first please tell me if what im hoping to do will work out fine. So my computer case now is to small and my PSU only gives me 220Watts so any new/modern graphics card wont fit or get enough power to run. So what i want to do is get a bigger case (COOLER MASTER Elite 430 RC-430-KWN1 Black Steel / Plastic Computer Case) and move all my entire computer to that case. Im almost positive that will work, nothing will go wrong, etc. However what about the PSU im buying? (Antec High Current Gamer Series HCG-750 750W ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V v2.91 SLI Certified CrossFire Certified 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply) Will that need a new MOBO or something crazy, or can i just get a new case a new PSU and plug in my Radeon HD6670?

Well, that case is useing a ITX Power supply meaning the motherboard is ITX as well meaning... No your motherboard won't work in that case. But the power supply should work in theory.

Also there is no point buying such a rediculous power supply just to power a 6670. You Could power a 6670 with a corsair 430W power supply. (I only use Corsair, Seasonic, Enermax, XFX, Sapphire, And PC power and coling) Unless your doing it for future upgrades and the like.

The case said it is compatible with all ATX or micro ATX motherboards though?

If the motherboard in that tiny little acer is an ITX board it may or may not work.(at least most all manufacturers with those tiny PC's use ITX Boards) You need to check with Acer to find out if it is , or is not.

Hi.

First of all I don't think that you can put at all an AMD card because your current motherboard has an nVidia chipset, so you can only use nVidia cards.

Second your mobo isn't ITX it's standard ATX, so it will fit in most cases.

Now as for your case and PSU, I would recoment Thermaltake. A simple case with window costs around 35$ with 4 or 5 case fans. As for PSU if you aren't planing to go CrossFire a 750W PSU is too much and expencive.

My recomendation:

Case: Thermaltake V4 BL edition

PSU: Thermaltake M550W (550W the HD6670 needs at least 400W)

Thermaltake Level 10GT-ToughPower 1500W-Frio Extreme/Asus Sabertooth 990FX/AMD FX 8150/Asus HD 6990/Kingston Hyper X Predator KHX18C9T2K4/16X /WD VelociRaptor 250GB(Main),x2 320GB(Raid BackUp)Caviar Black,2Tb Caviar Black x2/Creative SB XFi 3D Pro/LG Blu-Ray x2/Windows 7 64bit/Samsung T27A950 x3/Samsung HT-D6750W/Logitech G19,G9x,G13.
