I answer questions here, but
Hi LordMongoose. The graphics cards we have tested and recommend on this computer are the GT 545, GTX 555, GTX 640 and GTX 660. If you were to upgrade it, take into consideration the power consumption for it needs to be 150W or less. You can check on the NVIDIA website the specifications for their video cards.

Thank you all for the responses. And I'm not computer expert but that is one of my main questions, because the cards you listed is based off the default 330 watt power supply but am I able to upgrade to like a 600 watt power supply and get a better card?
That 770 will have an 8 pin and 6 pin power sockets I bet. So yes you'd need an external power supply. Not only that the card your looking at is not a reference card, so your bound to have heating issues inside the case. I went for a reference Zotac 760 GTX 4GB and it runs just fine off the 330 w psu. Not quite 60 fps on Ultra for BF4 all the time, but good enough.
