OCZ ModXStream Pro 500W enough for HD5770?

I'm planning on running a 5770 with 2 HDDs, a 125w PhII CPU, and some 2x2 RAM. You think the PSU is enough for it? It's modular and 80+ certified..

Here's the link. I can get this PSU for 36 with a DVD drive. Dunno if I should get on it.

    You should be okay.

    Here are the ATI recommended power supply requirements for the ATI Radeon HD 5770 and 5750 video cards:


    450 Watt or greater power supply with one 75 watt, 6-pin PCI Express® power connector recommended

    600 Watt or greater power supply with two 75 watt, 6-pin PCI Express® power connectors for ATI CrossFireX™ technology in dual mode.

    The recommendations are for an entire pc system..
  3. That PSU will easily handle a 5770.

    Even a Quality 400W PSU will handle a 5770.HD5770 is a great card with very good power consumption :)

  5. Go for the deal and have plenty of headroom. Just for information, I'm running a Phenom II X2 550 BE and Radeon 5770 downstairs on a Corsair CX400 - it all comes down to the quality of the PSU.
