I currently have a dell xps 8300 running on a i7 -2600 processor.

it currently has a Radeon HD 6450 built in but i want to upgrade to a 7770.

will it work with this power supply?

you are absolutely fine. your system with that card will not draw over 235 watts. dell PSUs are not the best but they are not a flaming brick like a diablotek.

btw, blow the dust off that cpu heatsink.

The answer to your questions are (DRUM ROLLS)....

YES!

You can get a 7770 (May i recommend the Asus because it is quiet and cool), and the power supply will handle it fine.
