  1. If its a quality 350W it should be fine. Even with an overclocked AMD chip you wouldnt be drawing more than 200W through the 12v.
    However, if its a generic unit and/or 3+yrs old, wouldnt trust it to hold a graphics card.

    From the little I can find of it online, that PSU looks pretty generic.

    See i would buy a new psu but i don't know if it would fit in the case any help?
  3. Well, I need to know what the case is first. If its a standard ATX case, any PSU should fit in it just fine.

    Now i'm not the best with pc's but http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g252/azn_plyr/DSC00751.jpg that kinda what it looks like
  5. Should be fine, any standard ATX PSU should fit in a case like that just fine. Only issue would be length, but it will be fine unless your looking at 1000W+ PSU's, which is vastly overkill for your needs.
  6. Antec Neo Eco 450C 450W Power Supply thats the psu i'm looking at buying and with that psu i should be able to get a Radeon HD7770GHz Edition 1GB with no trouble yeah?
  7. Thats a very nice budget unit, good pick. You should be fine to run that with a 7770.
