Hi, This is my first post. So, if there are any mistakes, please point them out.

Okay, My problem is that currently I have a CoolerMaster RS-500-PCAR-A3 500W power supply. it has 2 +12v outputs. Both are 18A. I was wondering if it would be able to run an ATI 5770 card.

My CPU is an old :
CPU: AMD ATHLON II X 4 620

Any suggestions? Any help would be appreciated.

1. Fill out the rest of your system specs in the User CP.
2. Let us know more about what you're wanting to do: gaming? folding? CAD?

Okay, I just added in my system. I don't do alot of gaming. Just occasionally, play some games, such as Borderland, Mass Effect 2, I play those games sometimes. I do some programming for school.

Okay, because I thought that the 5000 series would require much more power than the 4000 series in ati graphic cards. Is that true? (Comparing 5770 and 4770). Another question, can someone recommend a good place to purchase this card. Online or real store are okay. I live in Canada Toronto.

no theyre actually more power efficent..even a 5850 uses as much power as my 250 GTS.

the MSI 5770 hawk is the best you can do if you want a 5770. great overclocking card since its a dual fan and non-reference design
