I'm looking to upgrade to a Radeon HD 6770. I've been reading up on different reviews and heard a few references about power supplies. Will this graphics card upgrade require an additional upgrade? Where do I find the information to tell? Thanks!

Open up the side of your computer tower. On the power suply will be a label similar to these.

Post back what your power supply is and its wattage . Plus post your budget for the upgrade.
Then we can make reccomendations within your budget.

model # PS-5301-08HA
Serial # 02545278
Watts = 300

If that card is too much for the power supply I currently have, I'll just get the best one it can handle. Budget is 100$

I'm upgrading to play diablo 3 so any card able to run the game will suffice. I don't need maxed out settings but that would be great :D  . Requirements for the game is a ATI Radeon™ X1950 Pro or better

Looks to be 19amps on the 12v rail.
To be safe I would reccomend the AMD 7750 less power draw and newer tech. But is about $10 dollars over budget.

Looks like that will work. Seems to provide enough to run games at medium/high settings and low power supply. Great suggestion.

Is there any differences in brands at all? I see ASUS, diamond, saphire....I'm assuming they are all the same but wanted to check before I make the purchase.
