its a ATX psu the model number is psps-500
it says at 12v its 25a
the only reason i bought the raidmax was because i didnt know much about psu's and i thought it looked cool.
whats a good psu thats somewhat cheap that would power 2 5770s?

I think the minimum recommended power supply for (2) 5770's is 600-650 watts. I would go a little bigger for some extra headroom if you add anything extra later.
