Specs:
i5 3570k
Asrock Z77
Thermaltake Tr2 500w
hd 7770 1gb

Looking to spend around 200ish. Was thinking gtx 760 but unsure if my current psu can handle it. Will be buying from newegg.

Your power supply isn't very good... you'll want to upgrade it later. It would work with a 760 but like I said, upgrade it too.

The gtx 760 is a great graphics card. Usually EVGA and Gigabyte are better companies to buy from
Ususally the r9 270x would be a better buy since u get a free game with it, but the price on those hiked up.

Yeah you should get at least a 650 W psu. That will enough for most graphics cards.

A 500w PSU will handle a GTX 760 just fine, especially a good quality PSU like this one with an 80+ rated efficiency. An i5 3570k is a good match for this GPU. I'd always recommend reviewing other GPU's first, but in my mind a 3570k and a GTX 760 is a good pair, and certainly a good step up from a 7770.

So this Graphics card is usable with my current setup you think or should i look into a lower one? Cant really upgrade PSU and graphics at this time. If i risk system stability i would rather go down a few pegs.

A little less performance than a 760, but a good upgrade nonetheless

It's not the wattage it's just the quality of the power supply and how well the power is delivered so that your components aren't damaged. Thermaltake power supplies are not so good, while XFX power supplies are great
