I'm wondering if this power supply is the right size and has the right connectors for my computer.
I'm a complete newb with this type of thing so any information would be great.
If it doesn't go with my system would you mind helping me find one that will? Around 600-750w and within the price range of $100-$150.
The power supply also has to be compatible with this video card.

The Cosair that you referenced is a little deeper than most standand size PSU (5.5 by 5.9 by 3.4) You might consider the Corsair HX 650 as an alternative PSU.
The ATI 5770 is a longer video card compared so some so clearance length wise will be a little tight. An alternative video card might be the NVIDIA GTX 460 with the 256 bit memory interface.
