Can this power a gtx770?

Thinking about upgrading my GPU soon, and was curious if my PSU/Mobo would work fine. Thanks.

What is the recommended wattage for a 770?

You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.

Should be plenty.

I think a 770 is 600w recommended. I know I have the wattage covered, but I was just checking before I order this windforce :)

It can power two of them easily.

I was more curious about the 770 being a pcie 3.0 and the mobo only having pcie 2.0. Is that anything to be concerned with?

Edit: Google'd it. Apparently it will work fine in the 2.0 slot. Thanks!

No, that's not much of an issue. PCI Express versions affect bandwidth. 3.0 has twice the bandwidth of 2.0 and 2.0 has twice that of 1.0. The bandwidth of 3.0 is hardly needed at this time. Compatibility is not affected.

Is there any reason to get the 4gb version of the gtx770 or should I save ~$60 and stick to the 2gb version? Looking at this card specifically.

4 GB would last you longer basically. Some games are already starting to use more than 2 GB, but they are few currently.

I dunno how much physx matters to you, but you could always get a 7970 instead since they have 3GB of VRAM and can be had around $300.
