I wouldn't push it with that PSU. How many amps do you have on the 12V rail?

Do not "hope" your psu isn't a issue, make sur. Open your case and look for the amps on the +12V rail.

Yes 2.0 supports 3.0.

The mobo had pci-ex x16 1.0, I wouldn't gamble for it..

And for psu, If the PSU had pci-ex power cables/pin for graphic card Then it usually can power 7770 (it not to demanding card)

edit: are u sure u had 2.0 pci-ex? from msi website it was 1.0....
if the psu don't had pcie-x power cables/pin then u may need new psu (don't use Y converter, etc)

Aha, make sure first then if it is 2.0 indeed.

If your sure the mobo is 2.0 it's ok.

With the powersupply you are really cutting it close ; i believe at least 20A is needed so technically it's possible, i can't recommend it though.

A 3.0 can work at higher speeds, but current low end gpu's don't use it really. I believe a 7770 won't be effected.

The only thing bothers me if the card use the 2.1+ specification (it had different power bus structure than 1.0/2.0) but i'm this issue not so clear.....

btw if u try it, please update the post (if it work or not) for future reference

the 2.1 card had different pci-ex bus power requirement than 1.0 or 2.0 so there a chance it wouldn't work... I dunno about pci-ex 3.0.

when the card running on 1.0 u also get performance limitation

So my opinion is not to risk it, save the money for the new build ....

i was using a nvidia geforce 210 and hd 5450 card on the same board without any difficulty.so my point is whether or not hd 7770 work with my mobo?i hope it might be a pcie 2.0 bus standard slot..the msi website says its a 1.0 bus standard slot whereas the user manual and the mobo guide book refers its a 2.0 bus standard slot.
so,its rather confusing with the pcie slot.are there any software that determines the information about the mobo?

Honestly it should work. But probably not with that PSU. Maybe I would recommend a 7750.
