So I have a BFG 450W AtX and the HD4770 requires 450 watts minimum. Would I be able to run this card?

You might be able to, but you would be pushing it, and you definitely can't over-clock thats for sure. What processor do you have?

It's an Intel Pentium Dual CPU E2200 @ 2.2Ghz

Ok, so that chip is not a huge draw, and neither is that card for that matter if I do recall. I think you should be fine, but like I said, probably can't overclock.

Really? Thanks.
I don't really intend to overclock, never done it and never intend to do it. :)

the BFG PSU is very solid and peaks at over 450w, you have more then enough power. The 4770 is a power efficient card, just about any 400w PSU can run it.
