Trying to build a new gaming PC for girlfriend but using my old GPU. Is the sapphire HD 5850 gonna work with newer components?

As long as the combined voltage is lower than PSU, the PCI slot fits, then it's all right.

But then, there isn't much new games that'll run on the 5850.

That mostly depends on how good is good enough for you/her.

I have a HD5770 and that is still good enough for me at 1200p most of the time.

It would perform nicely on those titles.

My HD5770 does a steady 60fps in D3 at 1200p with graphics maxed out so you should have no problem there.
