Welcome to the forum. What specific PSU model do you have? You may need to replace it. Depending on the HDD you have, it may also warrant replacing. If you can keep both, here's a nice crossfire capable build (which you would actually need a new PSU for, but that can be upgraded later).

CPU:
  • AMD Phenom II X4 955 -$160-
    MOBO:
  • Asus M4A89GTD Pro/USB3 -$150-
    RAM:
  • G.Skill Ripjaws -$116-
    GPU:
  • Asus Radeon HD 5770 -$163-

    Thanks! The PSU I have is a Antec Basiq 550W, would that PSU work with that build?

    Yes, it will work for now although it's not the best, but you'll need to upgrade it if you want to add another 5770.
