id suggest getting a new power supply like the xfx 450w to run a 7770. for the graphics card, id suggest getting a gtx560 or a 6870 at the minimum. anything lower doesnt really provide a good gaming experience

the 460 is still good though

Sorry haven't mentioned it. This build will go to my young brothers (One is 5 and one is 8) And they will be playing some Most Wanted and a small bit of Skyrim because they caught me playing it and won't forget it LOL. So my question is.. Does this PSU handle a 7750??

That PSU will have no trouble with a HD7750. Its 20A of total +12V current is probably not enough to reliably run a HD7770 for extended periods of intense gaming; close, but not quite.
On lowered settings, a HD7750 can play modern games quite well, especially at lower resolutions. At 1366x768 (720p), you'll probably play on high.

Ummm .... Skyrim is not really kid appropriate. By any stretch of the imagination.

It's worth the $25-$30 to get a new PSU for the PC before adding in a video card.

If you want a more comprehensive assessment of performance you will need to give us system specs though.

Thanks! You can read the whole PDF because I haven't changed anything. Its 4GB DDR3 RAM. Gay Dell Mobo. C2D E7500. Graphics irrelevant (ok its 5450). And If I've missed anything look up the Optiplex 780. :)

Its better than my 5450. And my 5450 is quite OK for Most Wanted. Then a 7750 will kick ass. And they dont mind playing a game on 800x600 because they are just kids remember? And they are gonna play on a TV and never seen any game eye candy. Not even a PS3. LOL So a 7750 is MORE than enough. And plus. Either way its gonna be a step up from the ordinary TV they are watching heh :).

And also.. This Mobo has PCIe 1 x16. Not PCIe2.0, not 3.0 its the original traditional PCIe. Will it be a bottleneck??
