What is your model power supply? Does it have a six pin PCI-e connector?
Does it have enough power to run the card is what Im also concerned about.

Do I need to actually go into the power supply to see if it has a 6 pin PCI-e connector ? and I really have no clue about the model of the power supply

That looks like a 180w power supply. It will not power the 6770, if that is correct.

Yes, you need to check whether your PSU has it.

Check this photo, it's my system:

The lower circle shows when cables come out of my PSU.
The upper one shows where you have to plug in the 6 pin connection.

You don't have to hide the cables like I did, just connect the 6 pin connector from your PSU to your Graphics card.

That's how my GTX 560 Ti looks after I connected it, please note, my card requires 2 connectors, while yours will require one (probably):

So do I need a new psu because it's too low watts and I can't see any 6pin connectors that will go into the graphics card ??

IDK what rating there shows, but I am using it myself (just 600W model) and it hasn't disappointed me. Plus, Corsair is a good and quality brand.

LOL yes your PSU wattage is to small, get something like a 500w from a good manufacturer.
