This is my computer: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Docume...

currently i have 300 W PSU but im going to upgrade it
im looking for the best performance a graphics card can offer under $120, i know about the 7750 and im considering the 7770
thanks in advance

if $120 is your budget limit, than get 7770. But if you can afford a little more, you can get 650ti that perform above 7770. Your choice :)

650ti is too expensive, i also have to upgrade my PSU
what about the 550ti? its only $119 and looks powerful to me but i dont know much about graphics cards

550ti perform same like 7750. Buy 7770 for best bang for price with your budget

ur probably right, i just compared the 7770 with the 550ti on AnandTech and the 7770 was a little better in every test, although it is more expensive

Get the 7770. Its newer gen so it will continue to get driver upgrades for a little longer and perform better.

alright thanks, but can someone tell me will the 7770 need external power (auxiliary power)? does that mean i have to buy a separate wire for it to connect it to external power instead of upgrading my PSU?

you can get molex 4 pin to pci-e 6 pin adapter. But it's not recommended for long term use. Get new PSU with 6 pin cable to be sure you are safe
