This is the computer I recently built, but I was wondering if I could upgrade the Graphics card to http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... for better performance, but without having to change the power supply or any other part for that matter. Is a 400w Power supply able to support a new graphics card.

450w PSU is recommended by AMD for a 6770.

Is your PSU branded at all or does it have an 80PLUS rating? If not, then I would suggest buying a new PSU.

Corsair Builder Series CX430 is a fantastic little unit available at a really good price. That should be fine to power a 6770 build.
