Hello.

I have a 2 year old Fujitso Siemens Scaleo P computer. I want to upgrade its graphic card from an Nvidia Geforce 8600gt to an ATI 5770 XFX version. However my computer only has a 400watt PSU and I want to upgrade it. How do i know which one to pick? All i know is that it should be aroung the 500watts but i know nothing about the ampers, volts and even the different cables... Does anyone know what i should pick?

Thanks

Motherboard: AMD690VM-FMH
CPU: AMD turion 64 X2 2.66 GHz 5000+
RAM: 3 GB DDR2 800MHz

2 hardisk SATA don't know if it is a 5400rpm or 7200rpm

Right, ur PSU is ATX, so, the recommended PSU fit perfectly in ur case.

Looks this two links and compare the specifications, u will see that are very similar.

1- Recommended PSU
2- Ur current PSU

For the 5770 ur current PSU isn't enough, u need a 500W PSU at least.
