hello,
I currently have this PSU. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
and was wondering if it would be able to power this GTX 770 4GB Windforce. http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=...
I currently have this motherboard too http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
otherwise i have just 2 hard drives which shouldnt use up much power. I was told from a friend that i would need a new PSU in order to use this video card, is this correct? do i have to buy a better one? any help would be much appreciated.

That psu has enough watts and enough amps to power the GTX 770 no problem.

Except there is a problem. Coolmax. Very low quality parts in that power supply. I personally would not trust it to power a great card like the 770. If you have the funds, replace it immediately. Something like an XFX, corsair (non CX models), Antec HCG, or seasonic for example.
