My suggestion is save a little bit more and go for a GTX 260 - 216SP (normal, SC or SSC) by EVGA (if you go the green road) or the Sapphire HD 5770 Vapor-X (if you decided to turn ships and go the red lane)

I have looked at the 5770 and like them alot, but all need a 450w power supply(recommended) and I am not sure if my 400w will be enough. The 5770 is within my budget but not it and a PSU. It is kinda looking like a 250 might be my best bet.

400 watt may get by if it is a good one (check for reviews) and you don't have but one hard drive, optical drive, and you cpu/memory is not overclocked.

1 hard drive---check

1 optical drive---check

unOCed cpu/memory----check

 

That is my set up to a tee. Just the good PSU I am unsure about. LOL

I knew I was good for a 250, but would I be OK for a 5770? Is there a big difference in the 2?

The HD5570 isn't too demanding power wise and something in the region of 250W~275W, absolute maximum, is all that will be required from the power supply for a fairly high spec PC with this graphics card installed. The Delta 400W power supply should therefore be adequate but I'll be honest, I'd be far happier if the power supply was something from Corsair, for example. The Delta power supplies aren't bad by all accounts but they tend to be used by the mass producers of pre-built PC's and in the industrail sector and aren't a brand that the PC enthusiast would even consider.

Thanks Paul...it looks like the 250 is the way to go for me. That's unless I can scrounge some money for a PSU

Let me get a list of 250s together that I think might be the one and I would like everyone's opinion
