Hi,

Will this graphics card work with my motherboard?

yes, it will work fine, but you need to get a new PSU.

You could get a decent 500W or 400W to run that card. Be sure to buy a good brand.

This one should run that card fine.



Hmm, not sure about the PSU you've listed, I can't see that it's 80+ bronze or better, and I would rather choose something that's properly certified, specially when it comes to PSU.

To the OP something like an XFX 500w like this:

it has more amperage on the 12v for a good GPU, and is 80+ bronze for added reassurance.

cost slightly more, but Id prefer that than some spurious make (not suggesting Antec are that, but I believe their PSU haven't been great recently)

Its a good PSU, I wouldnt worry about it. Tom's has used the PSU in several system builds. I remember reading about it in the system builder marathons.

You also dont need much power for a 7770 anyway.

These two budget gaming computers use the same Antec VP450 to power a GTX560 as well as a 7850. Both of which use up more than a 7770 (which I believe uses around 84W tops)

The other power supply is nice, and I've done many builds with the XFX 550W, but for a build with just a 7770 and a X4 640, that power supply should suffice.

Also, keith12, props for running a Core2Quad. Glory to older processors!

:)  haha.....yeah my old G0 is still alive!!! In dyer need of an upgrade though. With all these super duper CPU's and GPU's out, I'm only green with envy, recommending things I can't get LOL. Still, it's serving me well.

Right, sounds good! I think I may go for the Antec power supply since my machine isn't really that powerful anyway and I'm also running on a tight budget :(  Ill also probably get that graphics card too.

I probably should have mentioned earlier - I'm trying to upgrade my computer to run dota 2 on max settings (or close enough) with minimal upgrades. Do you think I could get there or close to that with these 2 upgrades?

Should be pretty good. Just test to see and see what happens.

I actually downgraded keith12, I'm trying to sell my fastest computer.
