  1. It is more than enough. You can run a 7770 on 450w.
  2. so what you are saying is that i can run all of that stuff on a 600w power supply?
  3. Yep that's what he meant, in a way your build wont draw all 600 watts but its good to have headroom for upgrades and overclocking.
  4. Easy. It will run on 450w just fine. 600w is overkill for a 7770. Its just a middle range gpu. If I was you I would switch to a non k CPU and use the extra money to get a 7850 instead.
  5. If you are switching to a 450 watt power supply grab this:

  6. That's the best 450w psu by far. I have it with that same 7770 and its great.
  7. Yep, sure is one of the best 450 watt power supplies based on price and quality.

    According to this review:
    http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/printpage/Antec-VP450-Power-Supply-Review/1487

    They were able to pull out near 550 watts, that's way over the labelled wattage.
  8. well i do plan on getting a water cooler and over clocking and thats why i got a k series so i might need more then the 450, thanks for the response though, it did help
  9. what kind of water cooling are you going for? Closed loop? No good just grab a high end air cooler at that price that will perform better. If custom then go on right ahead.

    i was planning on this but if you are saying those air coolers are better, i will definitely check them out

    do you have any recommendations for one?
  11. Well a good budget cooler that performs very close to the H60 is the Hyper 212.

    Take a look at this, the hyper 212 trails the H70, the H60 should be below or above it but very close by. My guess would be below since I own the Kuhler 620 and it is almost equal to the H60.

    Edit: According to this foreign review, the Kuhler 620 does perform just a bit worse by .1 of a degree and the hyper 212 evo is equal to it.
