Hello,
I think to know, that the difference is the velocity of the channels and the Watts but I' m not be sure it will work.

Does it work putting a new power supply with 6 or 8 pin for the new video card?

What are your full system specs?(CPU,RAM,etc.)

It depends on what the card's power requirements are.

All of the 6770's I've seen are 2.1 cards.Are you sure the 6770 your interested in is in fact a 2.1 card?

Your mobo looks like it's a 1.0 slot but I can't be sure.I would suggest going with a 5770 or a 6770 that is a 2.0 card to avoid any complications.

What is the make/model of your PSU? How many amps are on the +12/v rail(s)?

I really like is to change my video card.

And if only I change the power source would be nice to me.

I would like to be sure if anyone has been able to use a PCIe 2.0. a 16x PCIe slot?

I have another power supply Mustiff of 800w EPS12V 2.2 specs, it has 8-pin(4+4) and 6Pin in the other computer, actually I can buy another one.

May be I can try with this one, but I wanna be sure It could not damage the mobo

all of the PCI 16x standards are inter-compatible, the speed of the link is determined by the weakest component. The PSU should be able to handle your card fine too.

Thanks for your response, actually the tom's hardware people cover this theme here

They mention " That is to say its power requirements are entirely satisfied by the PCI Express x16 slot."
