should i buy a second hand 5770/5870 to crossfire with my current 5770 or save the extra for a newer card like a EVGA GeForce GTX 760 SC ACX 2048MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card

save up.....
the 5770 is a little outdated and poor in performance, and in a crossfire they'll get hot + you won't get the performance that 1 better card offers you

ok, I thought that you have an old cpu that will bottleneck the new gpu, but you're fine with this one...what am I saying, it's a sweet cpu. Great I could help you out, but in the near future upgrade that psu....corsair is a good brand, don't get me wrong, but the cx series is their budget line.
