That may be what it says but it will run fine on your 250W unit.

Well I know a few things about PSUs, but don't take it from me, see this review of the 6670:

You can see their test PC (which is more power hungry than your Pentium E5800), paired with a 6670, was drawing just under 200W under a gaming load.

It's an i7-920, which is notoriously power hungry, and it's overclocked.

Calculators are pretty bad. Anandtech actually measured those numbers with an electronic device that does just that.

Hard to say, but yes, most likely.
