Long story short: my HD7770's HDMI support was DOA for me (or the card is just not strong enough). I've been using DVI, and I still will. I am looking for a direct upgrade. I'm not picky, but the card I have now has to go. Looking for less than $375 USD, 2GB+, with BOTH VGA/DVI and HDMI. Thanks.

You're constrained by your psu. You'd only need 500W for the 7770 so I gather that's what you've got. The best nVidia is a GTX 760 - 500W, $220
and from Radeon - HD7950 - 500W, $275. The GTX performs a touch better and is cheaper.

GTX770 would be good but you may need more power.

GTX760 would work well.

I would say get gtx 770. It would be a massive upgrade from 7770. This card it meant for real high end gaming and is a waste of money if that is not the case. This card will max out pretty much every game at 1080p.

VGA - Is getting a bit old, can you convert to DVI/DP as modern day cards don't have VGA anymore.

I would look into a R9 280X or a R9 290 (preferably custom cooled) if you can get one under $375

Mind set on the GTX770.

It looks like I'd need to upgrade to a 700/800W PSU. Don't care how much that costs. Can I just get a decent brand like Cooler-Master, not OCZ(first build, made bad choices).

Any PSUs? I'm not looking for bragging rights, just something to get the job done.

Side note: The 7770 came with a DVI to VGA adapter. I don't NEED VGA, but I need that OR DVI. Someone misunderstood what I said
