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. m 0 l socialfox a b ) Power supply December 2, 2012 8:53:45 PM If you are switching to a 450 watt power supply grab this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... m 0 l tiny voices a b B Homebuilt system a c 412 4 Gaming a c 89 ) Power supply December 2, 2012 8:59:27 PM That's the best 450w psu by far. I have it with that same 7770 and its great. m 0 l socialfox a b ) Power supply December 2, 2012 9:01:58 PM 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-Po... They were able to pull out near 550 watts, that's way over the labelled wattage. m 0 l iTzBOB3RT December 2, 2012 9:03:25 PM 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 m 0 l socialfox a b ) Power supply December 2, 2012 9:05:58 PM 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. m 0 l iTzBOB3RT December 2, 2012 9:10:17 PM socialfox said:what kind of water cooling are you going for? Closed loop?

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 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... do you have any recommendations for one? m 0 l socialfox a b ) Power supply December 2, 2012 9:21:02 PM 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. http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/imageview.php?image=3971... 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. http://translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c?dept... m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
