Looking for some input on a GPU upgrade.

I currently have an HD 7770. It's worked well over the past couple of years but now that I've made the switch to PC as my main gaming platform I'd like something with a little more power. I don't want to spend more than $400 and will also need to buy a PSU. Will I be able to get a significant upgrade over what I have now? If so, any suggestions on what I should look at?

What is your cpu and current power supply? You should be able to get a nice upgrade and power supply for $400.

Get a 550 Watt power supply, and a gtx 770. Total will be a bit under 400.

This, you might even be able to find a good 600watt psu at that budget.
