I don't think the brand matters that much. The gpu is made by ATI/AMD. You won't run a 5670 0n that power supply. Look at the requirements here.

Here's an example of an ATI GPU (Graphics Processing Unit):

My guess is you're asking about video card manufacturers, which is totally different than GPU manufacturers. When choosing a video card, you need to do your homework. All Radeon HD 5670 cards use the same GPU, but different card manufacturers will use different memory (DDR2, GDDR2, DDR3, GDDR3, GDDR5) from different manufacturers & the memory can be clocked at different speeds. They may also offer a different mix of ports (VGA, DVI, HDMI, s-video) & different cooling designs. The HIS video cards & the IceQ GPU cooling setup has been getting good reviews for years. The only downside is it's size. Do some research.

"i'm confused a little bit but that doesnt matter"

Confused about what? Terminology? A GPU is NOT a video card, it's the processing chip that's used on the video card. The name of the GPU used on the HD 5670 is "Redwood" which is from AMD's Evergreen family of GPUs.

Read the links that I posted & draw your own conclusions on whether HIS is good or not. But as grasshopper stated, you're not going to run an HD 5670 on a 300W PSU with only 14A on the +12v rail. You may be able to get away with a lesser gaming card though. Are you sure about that 14A? Could it be your PSU has two +12v rails?

Radeon HD 5570 - 24A and a 350W PSU minimum. You can't run that card with your PSU, period.
