  1. Suggestion:

    Scrap that PSU, grab yourself a good Corsair one, 500w is plenty.
    Upgrade that Graphics card 5770 to a 6870.

    500w PSU: $50 after rebate
    6770: $150 after rebate
  2. I already have one 5770 so im sticking with that plan and I just wanna make sure I have enough wattage so im gonna get something like a six hundred watt one. Are the other parts compatible?
  3. 600w would be plenty :) Yes, all other parts look good.

    Double check the motherboard spec's though if you plan on running a crossfire set up. Id generally consider ATX over Micro-ATX and look for a board that will run x8x8 when using multiple cards.
  4. I would agree as well to change the PSU to a more brand name unit that is reliable (Antec, Corsair, OCZ, SeaSonic, etc..)
