Hey, getting a new GPU soon and was going to get the GTX 760, but I found a GTX 770 for not much higher a price. Question now is would it run on my current system?

I've used the eXtreme Power Supply Calculator to calculate my wattage and I should have enough, now it's down to the connectors/ parts of the PSU I have no idea about whatsoever. Here is my current PSU:

And here is the 770 I plan on buying:

It might work, but you should really get a 600W psu. And a quality one

500w would be pushing it, it would depend on the rest of your system.

If it was a solid 500w PSU you might get away with it but that B500 is closer to a 400w PSU rather than a 500w PSU. So I wouldn't recommend running a gtx 770 with it.

So what upgrades would you recommend then, and if possible can you provide Scan links (I buy all my stuff from them)?

I play at 1920x1080p resolution, mostly games such as WoW and some of the more recent games such as AC4 and Arkham Origins. I just want smooth 50+ FPS at a high graphics setting, in desperate need of an upgrade from my terrible GTX 650. :(  Possible upgrade to a Crossfire or SLI setup available around June.

Budget is probably about £220.

If you can't get the gtx 760. Get the 550w XFX and a R9-270x.

Its slower than the 760, but its still a decent card.
