With a HD 5770 a 400w model from a quality manufacturer such as the Corsair 400CX is plenty. Basically a quality 500w to 550w unit can power any single graphics card. Good quality brands are Corsair, Seasonic, Antec, PC Power and Cooling , Silverstone and OCZ. Stick with those brands and you will have no problems.

Edit: This RAM is about the best you can get for the price. Fast speed and low cas latency and it works with both Intel and AMD very well. I doubt you can order from here but here is a link.

Do NOT buy a Kingwin PSU. Also I have heard OCZ RAM is very picky about what motherboards it works with. I would stay away from it.

I have used that exact RAM kit in close to 15 builds now both Intel and AMD with no problems. In my opinion they are cheap reliable and quite fast for the money. OCZ has slipped on quality. Just read the newegg reviews.

It all Depends on the specs of the ram and what the motherboard is. I heard bad rumors of Gskill that i tell people to stay away from them.

yeah you used the exact ram kit for 15 builds means nothing.. have you try any other ram from that company and have good resualt?

I have tryed lots of companies that makes ram and the best are kingston, OZC, and Corsair but G.SKill just came on the market this year but they were selling ram for the last couple years with alot of complaints about wrong timing reading, ram sticks wont work after so many hours on and poor manufacture. i have build over 100 computers so far and tryed different companies because certain stores will only carry certain brands. if you cant find the product that you want alot of places ship items to world wide but it might cost a bit more for shipping

GSkill has made good quality RAM for at least 5 years. What are you talking about? The ONLY memory I have heard bad things about lately is OCZ. Also what are you thinking recommending a Kingwin PSU? And telling him he needs 500 to 600 watts for a HD 5770?

Juanchioo you want DDR3 1333 or DDR3 1600 with as low a cas latency as you can find. Look for cas 7 or 8. Cas 9 is high for either.
To me GSkill, Corsair ( more expensive ) or Crucial are the best.

GSkill has made good quality RAM for at least 5 years. What are you talking about? The ONLY memory I have heard bad things about lately is OCZ. Its like any other product out there. Its all about money nothing more. Also what are you thinking recommending a Kingwin PSU? That might been a bad choice but i have red on the internet about that psu and some is good reveiws and some are bad. Just like any other company out there. And telling him he needs 500 to 600 watts for a HD 5770? The video card requires minimum of 450w (http://xfxforce.com/en-gb/products/graphiccards/hd%2050...) with a 6pin power cable. If you run anything lower then that you will run in to problems. The reason get a 500-600 watts psu is for some extra room to play with just incase he wants to upgrade his mother to sli/xfire or his gpu to a more powerfull one. I dont build computers and give them a psu is blow what it is required.

Juanchioo you want DDR3 1333 or DDR3 1600 with as low a cas latency as you can find. Look for cas 7 or 8. Cas 9 is high for either.

and for this?

AMD PHENOM II X4 965 BLACK EDITION 125w

ATI RAEDEON 5870 or 5850

ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3

G.SKILL 4GB DDR3 1600MHZ PC-12800 CL7 DUAL CHANNEL 7-7-7-24

COOLER MASTER SNIPER BLACK EDITION

i would choose the ATI RAEDEON 5870 because it has 160 more Stream Processing Units, 8 more Texture Units, 125 more Engine clock speed and faster specs then the 5850 one. I don't know why G.Skill is better then OCZ (I don't mean for the price reason) because I have not used it. If someone can tell me why G.Skill is better in more detail then saying just it then go ahead.

Don't think so, Seasonic specifically. Check out the X750 reviews on newegg, a surprising amount of a coil whine issues. Unfortunately for me, my X650 suffers the same extremely annoying problem. Gonna try to RMA but it sucks that spending >$100 for a PSU all of a sudden becomes a toss of the dice game.

That surprises me. Seasonic usually makes excellent units. Most Corsair PSUs are actually rebranded Seasonic ( some are Channel Well ).
XFX will do fine for you OP. They actually make some top quality units here lately.

I was surprised too, johnny Guru among other very reputable places gave it fantastic reviews. Then again I just bought a cheap $20 monopoly game and it was packaged wrong! Had to exchange it out in which I did receive a correctly packed one. Maybe its just me...
