Good Power Supply for AMD HD 7770 Graphics Card?

Hello, I recently boughy myself an AMD HD 7770 Graphics card and I just realized the reason it wasn't working was because my power supply only supported 300w :na: Also, a biggie to this problem, my graphics card of course requires a power connection to it which is a 6pin pci express. The power supply I have now does NOT have a single 6pin connector.. So now I need some help. Can anyone suggest me a fairly cheap power supply that has +600w along with a 6pin pci express? Any help would be greatly appreciated! :)

  1. Why 600 watts?

    Because my graphics card requires 600w (or better) and a 6pin pci express connector!
  3. No, it doesn't.
    The card requires 100w at the most. A Corsair cx430 would be enough.

  6. Any 80+ Bronze certified equipped with one 6pin pci-e connector above 400W would be be more than enough for 7770.

    Agreed .... it is actually enough for 2 7770's

    I've run 2 7850's on a cx 430 (no overclock) and a 3220 i3 1 dvd and 1 hdd

    This one I believe would be quite a 'more' than enough.

  10. That 600w recommendation is for crossfire I.E. two cards.

    With one card they recommend 500w and GPU manufacturers always overstate recommendations incase you have a power heavy system or cheap PSU.

    That one seems good as well.. well, my only question is does the Corsair cx430 and the card you recommended have a 6 pin connector for my graphics card?

    The one I chose got more than just one 6pin. Being honest it would be a slight overkill but it's on sale in Newegg that's why I suggested. Corsair CX430 is also enough for 7770 and yes it has a 6pin pci-e connector too.

    Ok i see. Well thank you soooooo much. Does NewEgg have like a quick delivery order?
  14. I just popped the case and can confirm the CX430 has a 6 pin connector.
