I just bought a GTX 770 about an hour ago, I was curious if the power supply I have would be able to handle it.

It just might. I feel like you'd need at least 550W since your PSU is 450W max and 500W peak. Depends on how much the rest of your components need.

I have the 770 and I can run it with the minimum 600w power supply while overclocking my CPU. I heard that 550w is stretching it. But from what I know, if you don't overclock or anything, you might be able to pull off a 500w power supply. However I do not advice it. I'm already pushing it with a 600w, so 500w is a little small. I would try it though, there is no harm in that, if the PC shuts off on boot, it probably can't handle it, either way I suggest upgrading to either 600w+ just to be safe and a little more future proof. The answer is yes, you can run the card with 500w, but I'm advising otherwise. Hope this helps!

Don't risk it, spend the $70 bucks to protect your investment: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
