Default Antec Basiq BP550 Plus 550W

NCIX.com - Buy Antec Basiq BP550 Plus 550W 24PIN ATX 12V Modular Power Supply Active PFC - BP-550 Plus In Canada.

So, i'm sort of strapped for cash at the moment, i was just wondering if this psu is any good and is capable of powering the rig i have listed in my profile ? (right now im using one that can't power it if i have my video card in )

Should be fine, though it's a low-end PSU.

A 5770 should consume less power than a 9800GTX+.

I'm using a 500w Antec and running a Phenom x2 550 + 5770 both overclclocked so should be fine, though I can't speak for that specific model, a 550 should be plenty capable.
And yes, a 5770 would need less juice than a 9800.
