Don't listen to the second poster. 500 watts is more than enough for the gtx 770. The power requirements are always overstated and the actual requirement is usually about half of what they recommend.


Why do they say that then?


probably to protect themselves from lawsuits. My guess is that the requirements are for the total system draw and since each system can be configure different. Nvidia just wanted to go the safe route and over estimate so they don't get sue for misleading information.

Yeah you are fine. A PC will rarely surpass 350w unless you are running heavy overclocks, using multiple video cards or if you have a bunch of add-ons which that PC doesn't have.

2nd, 5th, and 7th posters are all wrong. I am right.

Use a power supply calculator.

I already did the numbers for you. See post #8. If you don't believe me, calculate the wattage yourself:
