Yeah it was fine. HD 6770 is just a HD 5770 in terms of the hardware.

One review has an i7-920 @ 4.1 GHz (more power consumed than most CPUs for sure) and Crossfire HD 5770 at 526W from the socket with max power draw via FurMark + LinPack. The power supply used has about 86% efficiency at that load, so DC draw--what a power supply is rated for--was about 452W.

With a less power-hungry CPU you're plenty fine on a decent 520W unit like the Neo Eco 520C.

If I did not spend my money I could be running 2 6990 on a 850w psu ^_^.

<3 the PSU guru

Edit:6770 can run on a 350w PSU btw. 2 of them on a 550w.

Did you end up getting the PSU OP? It became sold out a while ago.
