My friend found me this. But what if it doesn't fit into my computer or something.

He says though that my PSU may not have the wattage to run in. IDK what that means.

PSU = Power Supply Unit. If you bought a prebuilt, it's unlikely you'll have a 500W+ PSU. You could always open up your case and check, it should say on the side.

Open your case and look at the PSU. It's a box in the corner that has the plug going into it. It should say the wattage in likely very large numbers.

How much wattage do I need for the 770 compared to the 760?

according to geforces website

500 w bare minimum for the 760
600 w bare minimum for the 770

So i'd probably go the extra mile and go with 650 or 700, pending on other things in case

I use 600w with my 770 and haven't run into any issues, even when stress testing the entire system at once

The GTX 780 TI doesn't use more than 372 watts when playing crysis 3. Either way, you probably want at minimum a 500W PSU just so you can adequately supply power to the HDD, CPU, Ram, and GPU.
