a 5770, 2 sticks of ram, 2 hdd and an optical drive will have no problems on 400 watt psu
Agreed. 5770 is 108W TDP before any OC and less then 150W with high OC You would be fine with the 430W solo especially if it is V2 as they are single rail so you dont even have to worry about what amps are on what plugs. And has 28A on the 12V PHII x4 pulls 125W no OC. So 28x12=~330 and with no OC your at ~230 MAX so you would be fine with just one. In all honesty HDD, Ram and, dvd dont use mush power at all.
