It might but i wouldn't suggest it, the 5770 can pull up to 280w. (http://static.techspot.com/articles-info/209/bench/Powe...)

I suggest something with a lower power draw like a gtx750ti or an AMD 7750.

The minimum suggested wattage for medium range GPUs is often 550w-650w.

The power delivered on your 12v rail is 384 w (32 amps). It MIGHT work but without knowing more there is no way to be certain.

What is your system configuration? If your cpu consumes 65 watts or less, you can buy that card otherwise you will find your system crasheing a lot due to lack of power. It may even damage your pc components.

I would say no, with the age of the PSU (their power delivery capacity goes down a little over time) and your cpu i think that a 5770 will crash when your system hits heavy loads.

No, no and more no. That is the entire system not just the HD 5770. The HD 5770 can pull at max around 110 watts or 9 amps.

http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/radeon_hd_5770_rev...

That being said the power supply linked to is absolute trash and I would not trust it to power a toaster. Get a name brand like Corsair, Seasonic, Antec, XFX, OCZ, PC Power and Cooling, Silverstone, Enermax or EVGA.

Also incorrect. The power supply listed supplies 16 amps on the 12v rail. Or 192 watts.

The link you included was for total system power, not the power draw by the card. This card uses 100-110w max.
http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/radeon_hd_5770_rev...

OP your processor is pretty low power at 65w so I don't think I'd see a problem with a name brand power supply at even 380-400w, but I'm a little suspicious about the brand you have being able to put out 450w.

You should be able to find a new r7 250 for about $20 more than the used 5770 and it'll use almost half the power so you shouldn't have any problems.

Here is a list to go by. It is for the entire system and includes headroom for overclocking.

There may be other power supply brands that are of high quality depending on where you are buying from.

No. Junk. 16 amps on the 12v rail gives you a 220-250w power supply if it was labeled correctly. And that assumes it can supply it's rated voltage and that is unlikely. Throw it away.

Personally I would not trust that power supply with any external graphics card. And to be honest I would not even trust it with even just a CPU. I can't stress enough that it is trash. As I said above it is a real 200-250w power supply. Treat it as such.

A 5770 will work fine with your CPU, just don't try to use it with that power supply. About $40 will buy a decent 400-450 watt power supply that you can use with the 5770 and use later on with newer parts if the 5770 is the way you want to go.

The 5770 is faster and cheaper, so It's probably the best idea and safest to go with the 5770 with a new power supply, then you don't have to worry about this problem in the future because you'll already have a solid power supply.
