Thanks for taking a look at my question.

My ATI Radeon HD 5770 card overheated and I'm hoping you could advice me with buying a new one.

I use my pc for gaming (AC3, Tombraider etc.) and want to be able to play high-end games at a reasonable level for the next 2 years. It's also a big pro if the fan is silent. My budget is around 200,- euro.

I was thinking about a Radeon 7870 xt/le or a GTX 660 ti.
Would that be overkill for this system?

Acer Aspire M5811
Intel Core i5 750 @ 2,67 GHz
RAM 6 GB DDR3 (might upgrade it to 8 GB)

I don't think that your setup will bottleneck these cards. So you will be fine. By the ay the 660 ti is better then the hd 7870 but the hd 7870 is cheaper and has better value for money. But if you have the cash the go ahead and get the gtx 660 ti.

Have a look at the HD7870XT, same performance as the HD7950 and quite a bit cheaper. I reviewed Sapphire's version and it wasn't silent but it was very quiet and it will beat the 660TI on most things. I don't compare it to the 660TI but my review may be of use to you: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQWfvcdMjNY
