I bought a sapphire HD 5770 recently. I need a good psu before i start using my gpu as i have a generic 500W psu running on my computer. My budget is 2.5 to 3k
Computer specs:
Processor: AMD Phenom 9650 quad core 2.3GHz
Motherboard: Asus M2N CM DVI
RAM:Transcend 4GB ram
Power Supply: Zebronics 500W

Another vote up for Corsair CX430V2.
You won't have any other option in 2.5-3K range.

^^ For HD5770, CX430V2 will be enough.
That PSU which is suggested in 80+ certified & is a very good choice. So you shouldn't worry about that.

Price at local market:
VS450 @2K
CX430V2 @2.3K

I think we should wait for OP's nest post before suggesting anything more. ;)

Hi guys, I bought the suggested CX430v2 last week
But ran into some issues immediately.
I plugged in all the connectors my mobo, HDD, GPU but when i start the computer there is no display, the monitor doesn't computer out of standby mode.
Although i can the GPU, CPU, HDD running.
So I connected the monitor to the on board VGA connector, the computer runs fine.
I again tried to connect the monitor through the gpu, it did get to windows but after a long time {3-4 mins).
But when i restarted the computer,it dint boot.
What do you guys suggest.
Also how do i disable the on board gpu.

1. Reset BIOS.
. Make sure you plug in PCI-E cable in the graphics card (if it have any)

hi i reseated gpu and cmos battery. When i started the computer it gave three options, to recover bios setting/to change bios settings/continue with default settings.
I choose the last one, right after the windows welcome screen the computer froze and restarted, keyboard lights flashed after some time i could hear the windows welcome tune but the monitor was still under standby. Before all this i had reinstalled the drivers for the gpu while running on the onboard graphics. Could it be a drivers issue?

It could either be GPU or motherboard issue. Try to send the GPU for RMA at first, and then see the result. If the problem remains as it is, then only send the motherboard for RMA.

I suspect this as a gfx card isse .. the mobo is working fine as Op can run with mobo IGP withut any issue but to be sure he can test the gfx card and psu on a friend's pc anyway.

Don't accept it.
Demand Sapphire HD6770 1GB DDR5 edition.
2GBDDR3 edition is inferior than 1GB DDR5 edition.
