I'm considering buying a HD radeon 7770/7750 for my system. Everything seems fine, but my specs are a little odd. So I'd like to confirm if it's compatible with my computer. If not, anything you suggest for an upgrade?

my specs are

CPU
Intel Pentium E6800 @ 3.33GHz 41 °C
Wolfdale 45nm Technology http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Motherboard
Intel Corporation DG43GT (PROCESSOR) 37 °C http://ark.intel.com/products/41036/Intel-Desktop-Board...

Power Supply
Coolmax V-600 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Current Graphics
FPD1975W (1440x900@60Hz)
NVIDIA GeForce GT 220


It's a bit of a budget Frankenstein, so I'm not sure if it'll work.

Oh it will work as long as your power supply has one PCIe 6 pin connectors (if you are using an HD 7770) and as long as you have one PCIe slot (which you do). An HD 7750 does not need the PCIe 6 pin power connector, but chech if you have one for the HD 7770, otherwise you just need to free up that slot :)
