By Rating, we Mean The Rating Of Your Power Supply Unit?
Do One Thing, Open The Case And Look at the side of the PSU, dere will be a table or so with values like +12V,-12V,3.3V Etc.
Post The Values Printed On It Against Each Voltage Reading,

For Example, 12V Maybe Against 16A (V = Voltage, A = Ampere), We Need To Know This To Find Out Wether Your PSU Will Support The Graphics Card!

If You Can't Find The Table, Then Post The Make And Model Printed On The Side,
For Example Corsair Vx500 etc..

^That!

If it's like 20A then you should go for a 5770/6770(Same card)

Thats A Good Enough PSU For An ATi 5770/6770. For Around 100$(And Maybe 10-20$ More) The 5770/6770 Is The Best Card Available Right Now.
It Has Dx11 Support And Will Do Great At Resolutions Upto 1600 x 900.
The 6770 Is Just a Rebranded 5770(Same Hardware), So If You Can Get The 5770 For A Lesser Price Then Get That!

If You Are Really Tight On Budget, And Can Scrounge Only 10 - 15 $ More, Then Heres One 6770:-

Its A Powercolour One And Isn't That Good Of A Quality!

If You Can Just Wait And Get Some 20-25$ More, Then This Is The One I Would Recommend:-

I agree with the 5770/6770. It's one of those cards that's hard to beat in terms of value if you don't need something very powerful. 5770's seem a little scarce right now though; the cheapest one I can find is $120. For that you might as well get a 6770.

This one's $10 more than the Powercooler above, but personally I think it's worth it to get a quality card.

Hello again and thanks so much for the reply.
the ATI 6770 states 450 watt psu. requirement and the ATI 5770 states 450 watt psu. requirement.
My PSU is 400watts, is this still OK to get one of the ATI 5770/6770 ?
Also which is the best brand for quality/

Also I do prefer quality at any price.
Thanks again

The 5770 is rated at 108W (9A) and in practice will usually draw considerably less than that under load. For a 400W PSU with 14A on the 12V rails, you should be fine assuming it can actually supply that.

Brand is somewhat of a personal preference, but HIS and MSI are both good brands.

About the power supply though... are you sure it's "Dinex?" I can find some information on "Dynex" but virtually nothing on "Dinex."

I Think Its dYnex DX400, Thats All I Too could find over the internet.

Now The +12V Is the railing which supplies power to the CPU,GPU etc.
Your PSU Has 2 +12V Railings At 14A And 15A ,
Which Is Roughly Equivalent To 29A on A Single 12V Rail(But Practically, This isnt the way the power adds up on 2 +12V Railaings, It Maybe sometimes less That 29A)

So The Power That Your PSU Gives, Roughly Is Equal To 12V x 29A = 348W(Assuming It Will SUply The 14A nd 15A As Said)
Now Your Pentium D Will Need 95W(lets Take It As 100W Just To Be Safe), Which Leaves Another 248W Power. Out Of That The GPU Will Require 110W, Which Again Leaves 138W For The Rest Of The System. Its Plenty. Don't WOrry :-)

Now If Money Is No Problem, And You Want Quality Stuff Only, Then Get The MSI Twin Frozr Version. It Is Already Factory Overclocked. Has Better Cooling, And Performs Great.

Price: $139.99
$124.99 after mail-in rebate card
$7.56 Shipping

Worth Very Bit Of Money!

Pentium D 820 @ 2.8 Ghz Is Rated At 95W.
Seconldy, I have A Friend Who Runs The Twin Frozr 6770 On A Cheapo 400W PSu(Frontech), With No Probs!

If The OP Needs The Money For A Card And Cannot Spend 40$ On The PSu, Then No Need To Upgrade Now. But Save Up And Do Upgrade Later.
However If The Op Has The Extra Money, Then The Xigmatek PSU Mentioned Above Is Good!

OOPS, I MISPELLED, IT IS DYNEX. IF I BUY A NEW PSU I MIGHT AS WELL GET SOMETHING MORE THAN A 400WATT.
