Alright so I purchased a pre-built computer from BestBuy back in August and I want to get a new graphics card to replace the current one which is a Nvidia GT 530. I understand I have to get an appropriate power supply as well. The card I would like to get is a SAPPHIRE 100283-3L Radeon HD 5770 1GB. The computer I currently have is an Asus CM6850-07. What kind of power supply should I get that I wont have problems with and will the Radeon 5770 work with my computer? Please Help, Thanks.

A 550w PSU should be safe.

The 550W would be a little overkill but in case your mother board has 2 PCIe x16 slots so you could crossfire in the fucture. Then the 550w will be good

Here is a link about the HD 5770 that will help you a lot. The 5770 is a smaller in size than the 5870 which may or may not fit in your case.

It is just a thought. I like Nvidia card better but that is me and there are a lot of people who prefer ATI cards and they are the best on low end cards.

You will see so much inprovement on the up grade 5770 card. Anyway here is the link.,2446...

Good luck OH ya make sure that the PSU you get will have a 6 pin connecter coming out of the psu because the 5770 requires another power source unlike the gt530

Thanks a lot! I had no clue about the connector. I'll be sure to look when I go to buy one.
