Hello, I have been looking at an upgrade for my current GPU, the XFX 6850. I've found the Asus GTX 770, and everything seems fine apart from the power supply. I'm not sure whether it has enough connectors for this graphics card, or if it will be bale to provide enough power.

Current specs:
Z77 Mobo
i5 3570k (No overclock and don't plan to)
8gb RAM
PSU and current GPU above

No, that PSU won't do it. 500w is enough, but that PSU only has 20a on the +12v rail available. You want at least 28-30 or so for the 770.
