Try a good brand like CORSAIR.

It might, but I wouldn't trust those kind of PSUs.

This is much more trustworthy and would have no problem with an HD 5770. It's only a few dollars more after MIR.

He should get atleast a 500w PSU for his 5770.


Also get it from a good brand: Antec EA/ NEO/ TruePower Series, Corsair, Seasonic, Silverstone, CM Realpower/ Silent PRO, PCP&S, OCZ(Make sure you get the 80+ Certified ones)

^ I've heard of people running HD 5770 CrossFireX on a Corsair 550 W PSU. In reality the whole system with an HD 5770 would use less than 300 W. The extra 200 W is just to be safe.

The Corsair CX400 I linked you would be more than enough, if you plan on CrossFireX you'll want a 500 W - 600 W PSU to be safe.

All the linked units are good quality and some may be higher wattage but that gives you more leeway for future up-grades.
The Antec is a steal at that price only thing is it's not a modular cable system neither is the Corsair.
They are high quality units though.
The OZC are all 80% modular which makes for an easier install the Fatal1ty is probably the best bargain of the OZC''s.

Wait so stay away from stealth and mode because you said "one of these".
Just want to make sure though I think you only meant stay away from stealth

Yes the one you asked about which was a StealthXtreme from Newegg and that line of psu's does suck /the ModXtreme's are fine that i linked as is the Fatal1ty.
Found a better deal on the OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W

And what i wrote is i have a ModXtreme 600w and linked one cuz they're good.
