Hi! I know this is my first post, but hopefully I'll still get some help. I've been wanting to join the forum for a very long time, but finally came around to doing it.

I'm soon buying a new computer. I have experience in upgrading computers, so I'm very comfortable with that. I will be purchasing this kit from TigerDirect:

I plan to play some decent games on this, so I know I will need a better graphics card. I don't need max settings, so I am thinking the Radeon HD6770, found here: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=869628&CatId=7005

I'm concerned about the power supply being strong enough. If it is, great! If not, I was thinking the power supply found here ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182200 ) was a good option. My brother is currently using it with great success.

Thanks for any input given, I really appreciate it!

i wasn't aware of the adapters... if the psu would run it, that'll be the way to go. Just trying to do a budget build and save some money. I also found a pack of 2 case fans that I will buy to keep it cool, I didn't realize it didn't come with them! Anything else I should know?

It totals $372.95 with everything. I'm confused by the link in your post... it takes me to a page with a bunch of computers on it, I'm not sure which one you're suggesting... I appreciate your help though. :)

According to it's specs you could use that power supply. I'm not too surr I would want to though. It's not the best brand. Personally I would try to find something else. For power supplies, I prefer Seasonic and Corsair.
