I will be running Games for long time with the Radeon HD 6770.

I need to buy a decent PSU for running the GPU. And the new should have no issues
with my system.

Preffered brand: Coolermaster. Now way for other brands cause the are not available where I live. So ONLY Colermaster.

Thanks.

 
Solution
No.It will be fine because your not even close to using the max rated output of it.Which means it will last a long time either way,in longitivity and usage.
You must have better the CoolerMaster available.

CM makes some great cases, but they are still learning to build PSU's.

A 6770 only needs about 8 amps. Power draw of your system will probably be less than 270 watts. So a good 400 watt PSU would work, but a 500 watt PSU would be better.

So can you assure me that i won't face any issues when running HD 6770 for a long time in gaming?
 
you dont need 500watts. you can run that setup from an antec earthwatts 380w. Coolermaster is crap, its impossible that where you live they would only stock one brand. if you get a good brand like antec, corsair or seasonic you will only need a 380w+ psu to run that setup.
 
Corsair makes good PSU's but their most known for their high end PSU's.Anything under 500 watts is mainly for budget builders that they make.But even still most of their budget builder stuff is better than CoolerMaster's stuff.

Either way it should be fine for your build.Your PC isn't going to consume more than 300 watts.
