More about will ampere sufficient 7770
  1. Here to make it short and sweet. Look on the PSU and get the amps that are on the 12v rail/rails. They have to be 20 amps or higher.

    500W (or greater) power supply with one 75W 6-pin PCI Express power connector recommended..
  2. there is 23 amperes mentioned in the 12 v rails and there are no any such cables that connects the pcie..there are 2 extra power connectors for hard disk,can it figure out the pcie power connector?well,im using this psu since 4 years without a problem so i have not upgraded it.do i need to upgrade it too?
  3. What exactly is your PSU?
  4. PCI-E slot can provide only 75w, PCI-E 2.0 150w , pci-e 6 pin connector 75w and pci-e 8 pin connector 150w.

    YOU NEED TO HAVE one 75W 6-pin PCI Express power connector for 7770 as per the card's sysytem requirements!

    Using molex-to-PCIe adaptors is fine as long as the PSU's 12V current rating is sufficient and the two molex feeds are from separate cables.
  6. where do i get the molex to pcie adaptor?and where do i connect the molex?
  7. +1 for invalidError...

    Depends upon how strong your power supply is. Most psus with only a single PCI-E connector don't provide enough amps on the +12V rails to support a high end card. Most are 450W or lower models anyway, so another plug wouldn't help. Most 550W and higher psus have 2 or more power connectors.

    If you have a really good power supply with a single PCI-E connector, then a molex converter should work. Note that most adapters convert two free molexes to a single PCI-E plug.

    To connect the molex:
