Hello, I just got a new PC and I was wondering if my PC could handle an AMD Radeon HD 7770 1GB GDDR5. My current GPU is a Nvidia GeForce GT620 1GB, not too great. My setup is:

CPU - AMD Athalon II X3 450 3.20GHz
GPU - Nvidia GeForce GT620 1GB(they sent the wrong GPU lucky me was suposed to be 520 XD)
Power - 350 watts
RAM - 8GB

Upgrade the PSU and the 7770 will work, You do need something better then that 350 watt to play it safe, Some will say it will work, but I am not sure what PSU they used in that system, so I can't tell what the AMPs are on the 12v rail.

Can get this PSU or better http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I'm more concerned that your CPU may bottleneck your 7770 but I think that your PSU will be able to handle the card if it is a good PSU. Either way you can try the HD 7770 with your current setup, wont harm your computer.

If you have a lower resolution(less than 1080p) moniter then your CPU shouldnot bottleneck your Graphics card
