Hi! Im currently trying to upgrade my computer from a sapphire hd radeon 5570 to the 6770.
The 6770:

However the PSU in my system is pretty bad, its a Logisys 480 Watt PSU. However I was tricked into buying it when I eventually figured out it only had 16 amps on its 12 V rail.

So my question is, in order to have the Sapphire hd radeon 6770 in my system, what PSU would I need to run it smoothly.

Currently Newegg is having a sale on all CORSAIR power supplies so I was looking at this one.

Would 430 Watts on a 28 Amp 12 V rail be enough to safely power the 6770?

Current Computer specs:
Sapphire HD radeon 5570 OC
4GB 1333 DDR3 RAM
AMD Athlon II X4 3.0 Ghz.
480 Watt 16 Amp@12V rail Logisys PSU.

So the Corsair's good enough? Awesome I can get this thing for 15% off as well. Love Newegg. :love: 
Thank you!

Used to have rebate to $25 and then another 8 dollars off 11 days ago. I got my cx430 for my hackintosh for $17 :D

That CX 430 is more than adequate to run your system.
