Okay, so heres 2 psu's i have, ignore the gpu:

Would these be able to support the 7770 1gb ddr5?
Also would the 7770 be compatable with the motherboard on this pc I plan on getting:

I ask this because I know the 7770 needs some really complex stuff that confuses me but you pc whizz people will get. The thought of assembling the thing scares me! Like it says it needs a 6 pin pic slot and I'm not sure if the motherboard has one! It has a x16 pice slot and other stuff.
Anyway I could really do with a reply ASAP as I plan on buying this pc then upgrading it and this is delaying that process. If I can get an answer to this I can finally purchase this! Please someone help!

as long as the psu you have has a 6pin then you are good to go (including your mobo).
-edit-
i think both of your psu has a 6pin. can't tell because the pics are too blurry. but there is no reason an ocz psu to not have a 6pin.

The OCZ PSU should be fine but im not sure about the motherboard

Yeah sorry about that, but I will put up some better quality pics later today. Also, why do you think about the motherboard, another guy above me says he isn't sure about the motherboard. Do you know?

Yeah it ha a pcie x16 a pcie x1 a pcie x2 or 4. But it has a bunch of pcie stuff. Anyway, I looked up how to install graphics cards and feel confident now. However, would you recommend I keep the 500w one whilst using the 600w one incase it fails or should I give my friend the 500w one for a tenner. (We're both getting the same pc and specs so will a 500w run the 7770? It will right?)

500w will be most likely be double what the system will draw from the PSU. All in all 500w PSU will be plenty for that system

500w is plenty enough for a low profile card like the 7770. as long as your psu has the 6pins you are good to go, like i said before. if your psu doesn't have one (if its a generic crappy psu) then you'll need to buy a new one that has 6pins. be wary though as you'll need to make sure you get at least a decent quality psu to ensure that it wont catch fire and explode.

it would run normal with 500w,in case if you dont have 6 pin connector,just buy 12v molex to 12v 6pin adapter to get extra power to your videocard,but you have to be sure that your psu is normal quality,not some cheap unknown chinese built
