Regardless of the fact that the XFX card is out of stock the Vapour X card is better anyway. A decent brand 450 Watt PSU Corsair/Antec etc, look for something that is 80%+ rated if you can. the card only needs a single PCIE cable and is quite light on power.

Nice choice on the 5770. The egg says you need at least 450Watts, it takes one PCI-express 6 pin power.
Since the XFX card is no longer available, I'd have to go with the other one.
The Antec Earth watts is nice:

Here's a 450W model from corsair, a powerful single 12V trail at 33 amps:

Basically you print out a form(the pdf linked from where it mentions the rebate) and mail it in with your receipt for the card. Then several months later you (hopefully) get a check for the rebate.
