Ok so im getting a HIS 777o and it requires a minimum of 500w and i know the horrible Diablotek 500w i have is not going to be enough.. So the card im getting from newegg comes with the two free games and i was going to sell those for about 50-60$ and i was just wondering what is a decent (not amazing gaming quality) PSU to run the card. the card im getting:

So yeah if you can help let me know price range 50-60USD thanks.

Edit: Sorry this is the one im getting not that one

And it needs to be compatible with the Foxconn 2AB1 motherboard.

This will suffice if your getting the HD 7770 or 7750 (you claimed the 7770 but linked the 7750):

I have run the Phenom II X4 955 Black edition and the HD 7770 with the VP-450. In truth, it is not wattage that is most important but the amps on the 12v rail. The HD 7770 should have a power supply that has at least 23 amps on the 12v rail (doesn't use 23 amps for the video card alone but for the whole system).

Even if its a Diablotek and is capable of powering on the system, I personally wouldn't use it, it is a tier 5 power supply in this list:

Tier 5 should be avoided, though do realize this list was created by a person not some power supply company so it is opinion. Though they did a really good job with it.

Edit: Looked around and the HD 7770 uses around 12 amps for itself, either way you are golden with that VP-450. You got some room to OC if desired.
