Will a 480 watt PSU run an ATI 4770?

I am building my very first system which is going to be on a very tight budget. The case I am getting (Logisys Area 51) comes with a 480 watt power supply. I want to put an ATI 4770 into my system. Will it run it?

  1. A good quality 480 watt has no problem with 4770 and yours will run it. Psu's that come in cheap cases usually are not considered good quality, I would recommend that you buy a new PSU from known manufacturer like Corsair, Antec and etc in the 400-450watt range.
  2. The 4770 requires one 6 pin pci-e connector. Pulls about 85 watts. Should be no problemo :)

    edit: As long as you don't decide to run a o/c i5 750 with high Vcore. Everest shows my 1.40 v 4ghz 750 spiking over 200 watts
    under prime95. Just showing a example of o/c systems using much more wattage than most think.
  3. @rolli59: All I need is it to barely run it. I will upgrade my PSU as my first upgrade on my future system.

    On a side note, here is what I plan on getting (via Newegg);
    AMD Athlon II X2 240 Regor 2.8GHz
    ASRock M3A770DE
    SAPPHIRE Radeon 4670 1GB
    G.SKILL 2GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM
    Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB HDD
    LOGISYS Computer Area 51 ATX Mid Tower Computer Case + 480W Power Supply
    Sony Optiarc 24X DVD/CD Drive
    Windows 7 HP 64 bit

    This is decent right?
