5770 Power Supply

Hi all

I have a question regarding the recommended power supply needed for a new gaming card that i hopefully plan to get.

At the moment i plan to get a Radeon HD 5770, but if i cant run it what should i get that is better than the 5450 and doesn't require over 400w PSU.

I also have:

Intel Q9400 @2.67Ghz
Gigabyte Ga-Ep45 -ud3r
Antec 400w Neo Eco 80 Plus
2 Sticks of DDR2 Ram
120gb HDD 3.5'

Im just wondering if i need a power supply upgrade to run all this together? Or is it possible to run it with this card

I have read the Power Requirements Specs for Cards but i want to ask just to make sure

Thanks for any advice given

    Hi - Best bet if you have the $$ is a 7750(about same perf as 5770)
    or 7770(better perf than 5770), both low power draw cards
    for the performance delivered. The 7750 doesn't require a 6pin adapter.
    The 7770 does require a 6pin connector but the neo eco 400 has one
  2. You have a 400w Neo Eco which has a 6pin plug. I see no issue with running a 5770 or even a 7770 as Toy pointed out. You probably want to avoid the 7850 but even that might be possible.
