  1. Why not pay $15 for a GTX 460?

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817815007

    Would be fine for any single GPU setup.

    Edit: For Improper Language
  2. You don't need much a 400W unit would run that.
    Better off choosing something 400+ - 550W.
    Best value Antec NEO ECO 520C 520W - supply your own power cord/not included
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371030
  3. The HD 5770 typically uses 61w while gaming so the recommend Antec NEO ECO (which is built by Seasonic) is fine.
  4. i already have a 400w psu. can i crossfire using this?
  5. For Xfire two 5770 I would recommend a 550 -> 600 Watt PSU. 400 Watt - No. My System (w/5770) draws about 300 Watts running furmark. Adding a 2nd 5770 would put you at close to max and possibly slightly over.

    Single GPU 5770

    System in IDLE = 228 Watts
    System with GPU in FULL Stress = 321 Watts
    Difference (GPU load) = 93 Watt
    Dual GPU 5770

    System in IDLE = 249 Watts (= 21W added over single GPU)
    System with GPU in FULL Stress = 423Watts
    Difference (GPU load) = 174 Watt

    I highly doubt it plus you risk the chance of damaging components.
  7. can i run it without crossfiring 5770 at my 400w psu? if im crossfiring i'll get a 600w psu. :)
  8. yes , 400 watts should be fine, for 1 5770, btw whats ur current ps, would be good to know before u purchase the card,
  9. if you meant my power supply. im sure that it is 400w. but im also getting biostar 790gx, phenom ii x4 955 black edition with the 5770. is it enough?
  10. hey friend am using his ati hd 5770 iceqv , and am in opinion with cooler master 550w(gx-series) is it good or not ???
  11. A 600W PSU would be more than quite enough for that even if you overclock all of that.
  12. 650W Thermaltake 80+ Modular would be great!!!

    for crossfiring too?
  14. Yes, for sure!!!

    trust me! go for it, you're not going to regret!
  15. I'm running single ATI 5770 1GB with i5 2500K. (haven't OC ed yet). I have the 650W Thermaltake 80+ modular.. great PSU~!

  19. Or any Antec with more than 600W, TP along the new gaming models are the best from Antec.

    I guess you are using the crack version [non original], you must have used the wrong crack while cracking. Download crack online and crack again.
    It'll work :)
