The 6770 pulls only about 8 amps at load. A CX430 would be enough.

sounds good if the cx430 can manage the card and less price so it means this would be the best choice?

Put my GTX570 on a similar system awhile back, just for kicks

Furmark = 300 watt from the wall as it sits in the photo, ~ 85% efficiency, OP could use a 380w with his card

I guess you could also keep the old PSU and use the new one as well so that you have two PSUs to power your system. It may not be a very neat solution but it works...
