Yes correct. How about with a 7770?

Newegg has a few options.

All seasonic:

300w bronze for $45

or

300w gold for $60

or

350w gold for $64

The first one is also available at NCIX for around the same price. I believe any of those should fit your case if you do not want to replace it.

No worries. That's a great price IMO. I have never heard of My Teknology before though. Like I said earlier...I think that setup would likely pull around 150w PEAK, so I wouldn't have an issue on a quality 300w like that one. If you ever want the ability to put a bit more powerful components in the computer you may want to go for the 350w version, but otherwise I would say your good to go with the 300w. Obviously that's all my opinion, so take it for what its worth (I know AMD says min 400w for the 7750).

My guess is because the majority of premade systems and case/psu combos have bunk psu like we are discussing here lol
They don't want folks taking the chance with a garbage psu. A high end 250w probably would be just fine but you actually have to know what a high end psu is. Little Johnny with his Dell doesn't know. He just wants to play cod......then kerplough! No more Johnny...
OK bed time for me .....

I had a G2120 coupled with a GTS450 : the only limitation was my TV's 60Hz refresh. Fraps was reporting 60FPS all the time in NFSHP2010@1920x1080 all eyecandy turned on.

I went with a g860 in the end, just because it was half the price and nearly the same. I am using it with a 6450 currently but have a 4670 on the way. I did upgrade my case to allow for a normal sized psu. I am using a norco rpc-430 4u server case now. Its much bigger than I expected but the flat black blends well with my entertainment center. I actually bought a second g860 to get free shipping on the case. I traded it on here for the 4670 :)
