Hd 6770 upgrade - PSU?

Hey guys,

First off i'd like to say thanks in advance for checking out this post :)

I'm looking to upgrade my gfx card, currently have a Radeon HD 6770. I'm looking to upgrade to the HD 6950, reference/non-reference and unlocking doesn't bother me, happy to run it as a 6950 with 1408 shaders.

My issue is that i'm currently on a 450W PSU and am looking to upgrade it to support the new card. I'm not real comfortable with PSU's as I've had one go pop on me after about a year and a half (Yeah, learned the hard way) So i'd like some advice as to what a good PSU upgrade would be that would suit my build and new card.

Board: ASrock N68-VS3 UCC
Processor: AMD Phenom II quad @3.2GHz
Memory: 8gb DDR3

There is no current budget so shoot away!

Thanks guys!

  1. Here you can check about what size PSU you need.


    Some of the Good PSU's are Corsair, Antec, Seasonic, and XFX. Make sure they are 80+ cert. Hope this is a littel help and good luck
  2. What's the brand of your current PSU? If it's reputable (Antec usually dominates the lower-wattage market), you'll be OK as is. If it's some no-name box, get a good 500W PSU and you'll be fine. ^yep Antec, Corsair, Seasonic, XFX. Cooler Master is OK too.
