More about enough
  1. That is plenty for the card.
  2. +1 :)
  3. The 6770 pulls only about 8 amps at load. A CX430 would be enough.
  4. so it means this psu is enough right?so tnx anyway guys
  5. more than 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

  9. 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...
