Requires extra power connector because it needs more than the 75 watts the PCI-Express slot can provide. As a result, most systems from big box makers will not be compatible (unless they are touted as gaming systems then they may work but should have a better card already) because they do not have the connector and it usually cannot be added without replacing the power supply with an upgraded one.

  So are all video cards around this price range require extra power or just this one? I've been using mostly on-board graphics so I've no idea what's needed to use them other than a decent power supply and the PCI express x16 slot.

rated:
The card comes with a power adapter, so if you don't have the 6-pin PCIe plug on your PS, you can use a standard molex plug (think IDE hard drive power plug). Whether your PS can supply sufficient power is another matter, but for this card many will. Specs say you need a 500W PS, but that's a conservative guesstimate -- not all PSs with the same wattage rating are equal.  Nor do all cards requiring the 6-pin plug consume the same power.

OOps, I meant to say "extra power connector".

Radeon 7750 is decent and does not require extra power or connector. Go with that on Dell/HP/Lenovo etc. desktop PC want I nice boost from integrated graphics but not hassle with power supply replacement/issues. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161418

Nice find.

But the title of this thread is a bit confused and could stand to be updated.
This is a Radeon HD 7770.
It is the Ghz Edition (because it runs at nearly 1Ghz).
And it has 1Gb of memory.
It is not a 7770Ghz card.
The way Newegg lists it is clear
"Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card"

Very good value performance card. That is to say it has impressive performance for not a lot of money.
Good points made by others about the possibility of needing a power supply but I think better band name desktops (Asus, Lenovo, HP, Dell) should be able to handle this card without an upgrade. If it won't you will know by the system shutting down or restarting unexpectedly.

EDIT:  Nice job cleaning up the title... if only FW would clean up the "Staff Summary" too.

#1, Not the same class (e.g. 5870 vs. 7770).  #2, AMD sacrificed performance for power savings when going from 5870 to 6870 and then 7870.

  The new GTX 750/750TI coming out shortly should not require an extra power connector.  Will be interesting to see how performance lines up.

  As dlee546 mentioned above, this card was designed specifically for low-energy consumption and high-efficiency. I use this card in my rig because I care more about cool/near-silent operation over blazing performance. Of course, this came out 2 years ago so the landscape has changed a bit since then.

I have an old Dell Dimension 9200 with a 375W PSU (I've read in the past and someone mentioned here as well the big names PSU sometimes handle more than rated - I dont know if thats true or not), do you think this will work with that ?  Do you think my old CPU (core 2 Quad 2.4GHz) will be a bottleneck for this card ?  I currently have a 9600GT card from years ago and was thinking this is a cheap upgrade but not sure if i need to also get a PSU and if my CPU would be good enough to make this 7770 run to its potential.  Any advice would help.

The 5870 has some advantages but it also has some disadvantages.
First of all the 5870 was something like $300 in it's day.  It closed out at about $200, or more than twice the cost of this card.
More importantly the 5870 requires a lot more power than the 7770 and so it isn't even an option for most store bought desktop computers without also spending to upgrade the power supply. 188w vs 80w - can't put an 188w card in a system with a 250w or 350w power supply.
The Passmark differences between the two are significant but they are not as dramatic as that link you provided.  They are 2,608 vs 2,156, or about a 20% difference.
If you were comparing things that were equal in terms of price then your remarks might be meaningful.
If you were comparing things that could be installed in the same system (similar power requirements) then you remarks would be meaningful.
But alas it missing on both counts.
Furthermore, the 7770 being newer means it also support newer versions of Open GL and Open CL, higher resolutions for HDMI, and has display port connectors that did not exist when the 5870 was a current product.

  I think this would be a very nice upgrade to your 9600gt and it should run perfectly fine in your system
  The 9600 GT has a Passmark ratting of 751 and the HD 7770 has a Passmark ratting of 2,156, almost triple the performance.  Now passmark isn't the end all benchmark but it gives a general idea.  More importantly may be for you to research the particular games you use and how well they play on each of these cards.
  Finally, the specs for the 9600 GT state that it is a 96w card and the HD 7770 is a mentioned in some places as a 80w card and others as much as 105w... either way not much different than what you are presently running so it should not be an issue.  And yes, Dell power supplies are conservatively rated so you could probably go much higher without any worries.

EXACTLY the reason that I bought this exact card a few weeks ago (at $99) for an inexpensive desktop with a 300w power supply.  There is no way that I would have been able to drive a better card with that supply.  My son uses it for moderate gaming with no lag at all. Yes, it does need power from a 6-pin PCI-E connector (which most, but not all power supplies have), but at 80w TDP, it runs great in my PC.  If you wanted a card that did not need the power cord and was low wattage, you might want to look at a 7750.

Thanks for the quick replies ... I think I'll go for it then !

rated:
Just open your system up and make sure you have that 6-pin connector. And if you don't see if you have any available connectors... it is possible that you would have an open molex 4pin that you could use with an adapter. There are no adapters in the box with this card (other than a crossfire connector - tho someone else said it does - maybe they left it out of my box?). But, I do love the card. Quiet too.

rated:
If you don't know what the 6-pin connector of molex that has been mentioned then watch the video in the item listing on Newegg as they are both shown there.

Also, if you prefer MSI to Saphire then there is a 7770 Ghz Edition card made by them for $5 more AR. It is a more popular card... and has a 3 year warranty as opposed to Saphire's 2 year earranty. The MSI is just over 7 inches long and the Saphire is 8.5 inches long making it harder to fit in some cases. However the MSI do not come with adapters to connect to a vga display, you will need a dvi, hdmi, or disply port monitor.

EDIT:  I may be mistaken about the length of the Saphire, apparently there is more than one edition of the Saphire 7770.  I believe the card the OP mentioned is smaller than the Saphire card shown in the video.
EDIT:  Yes, the Saphire HD 7770 shown in the video is the 'overclock' edition... it runs faster than 1ghz and so it looks like they stuck on a bigger cooling system and that added length to the card. Still the other things I mentioned are correct.

Thanks for the tips ... i checked and do have the 6 pin connector connected to my current 9600GT. also, i looked at both cards reviews and seems more ppl mentioned the MSI card being noisier at times ... anyway $5 cheaper and quieter is good for me, i dont plan on oc'ing or pushing the card too hard so dont need the added MSI features, also after you mentioned card lengths, the sapphire tech specs show its 6.10" so shorter than the MSI at 7.6", so thats good for me too. Thanks again.

  Sounds like you made a good decision.  I wonder how many of those loud fan complaints for the MSI are by people that are also over clocking the card (making it run faster and hotter and needing more cooling).  Probably 100% and they probably have not made the connection between the two things,
The Saphire should be fine but they are sticklers about the rebate.  After your item ships log on to Newegg and look at your order history.  There you can print a copy of the invoice for the rebate.  The order confirmation that they email you or that you see at checkout will be rejected by the rebate.  Enjoy.

Anybody else having trouble with the rebate at 4myrebate.com. I get all the way through the process of submitting the form online except at the final stage my completed rebate form is supposed to pop up so that I can print and mail it. But it tells me that I have a popup blocker that is preventing it from showing. I've disabled the pop up blocker and try again, no luck. So far I've tried Chrome, IE, and Firefox with any popup blockers disabled. On the screen that tells me that my popup blocker blocked the form, they give you the option of clicking buttons that say "print your rebate form" and "email your rebate form". The email button does nothing and the print button opens up a new tab that gives me the message "sorry, we could not find your page or timed out". Any suggestions?

  I've done many rebates via 4myrebate.com (probably at least 10 in the last two months, but not this particular deal) and have never had the issue you're describing. Do you have another computer you can try it on? Even if it's not connected to a printer, the "email your rebate form" button might work.  I just tested it with a recent submission and it sent me an email right away (a little semi-transparent blue box popped up saying an email was sent). 

If you still can't get it to work, you can try contacting customer support (customerservice@help.4myrebate.com). In my experience they take a few days to respond, but they do respond.
