Always on net
My config is core i3 prosy with 450w frontech psu.
I want to buy a ati radeon hd 6770 gpu for my pc.
But i can't find any 6pin gpu power conecter on my psu.
So what can i do. Plz help me.
Is my psu able to get the gpu.

you can try Molex to 6pin converter but that will result in the frontech going up in smoke. Time to change it.

lol.....yes.

@OP, Your PSU probably can handle HD6670 max.
For HD6770, better buy a decent PSU like Corsair 430 v2.

imo
check PSU's label for current capacity at 12v (combined) if it is above 20A (at least 200w capacity at 12V combined) then you are good to go with it, otherwise buy a new psu

even if his PSU labels says 20A on +12V he shan't use a HD6770 with the PSu he has - he better get a new PSu like Corsair CX430v2 or VS450 - it's better to play safe ;-)
