im trying to upgrade my graphics card from a gt 430 to a hd 7770 but i realized my PSU doesnt meet the needs of the hd 7770 so i am looking for a reasonable cheap replacement PSU for the one that came in my case

Specs:
CPU: Amd A4-5300
Ram: Crucial Ballistix ram 8gb (2x4gb)
HD: 500gb seagate barracuda 7200rpm
MOBO: Asus F2A55-m Lk Plus
Case (w/PSU): Sentey CS1-1399
PSU: 450w BCP450-OC

I was looking at something like a Dynex 520w PSU, which i know are kinda crap, but they seriously cant be worse then the one currently in it, just so i can run the card until i get a decent PSU (something like a corsair cx600)

Im kind of lost but i know that my current PSU does not have the correct amperage to support a hd 7770

JJ is right on, cx430(will run a sys with one 7770) at that price is an ex value.
