While installing a Radeon HD 5770 drivers I received a blue screen saying something about a power dump ect ect i cant remember it all because i turned off the power supply quickly. But best guess my power supply was too low?

What are your complete system specs? Is this a new build? Did you just add the 5770 to an existing system? If so, did you completely remove the drivers from the previous GPU with something like Driver Cleaner Pro?

Your link for the PSU is broken. Did the system work fine before you installed the 5770?

Well, you're certainly light on the PSU for a 5770. ATI's recommendation is a 450W PSU. You also need a 6-pin PCI-E power connector.

Does your PSU have the 6-pin connector, or are you using an adapter? I sure wouldn't run your system with the 5770 on that low-end 350W PSU.

Sorry may seem like a dumb question but how does the bronze certified effect the unit.

also would the 650 last me a while in terms of maybe using dual videocards

The rating refers to the efficiency of the unit. A unit with a higher efficiency rating will use less power from the wall and run cooler since less energy is wasted as heat output.

Either of the above PSU's would power dual 5770's.
