    I'm getting a new GPU and I have a question about it

    What PSU do i need for it? The reason i'm asking this is that it doesn't specify on the website.

    A 450 W Power supply with a 6 pin power connector.

    From site:

    * 450 Watt or greater power supply with one 75W 6-pin PCI Express® power connectors recommended

    You might get a 6 pin power connect from the box but some boxes say they have them and really don't.

    Get a decent brand, PSU's from brown-bag manufactures die, and when PSU's die they are known to take other parts out with them.

    Nice card & decent price though. I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

    (Any decent PSU you get will likely have the connections needed as it's just one 6 pin, focus on the brand though.)

    get a decent 450 like penguin said.

    this should be good : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817153138&cm_re=450w_psu-_-17-153-138-_-Product

    If you plan to upgrade later get a 750w instead. Better be ready now then have to cash out and buy a new psu later on.

    70 dollars for a 450 w PSU ! :shock:.

    I payed 15 dollars for mine and i've been running it 2 years. Dual 80mm fan quiet. He isn't going to need the most expensive psu out there to run a 5770.
