  1. A Corsair 650TX will do fine for that system. If planing to upgrade to CrossFire go with a 750TX.
  2. Best answer
    The Coolermaster Elite 310 is a micro-atx case. Interior space is limited.

    The Asus M4A785-M is a micro-atx motherboard with just one PCI Express 2.0 (x16) slot so a second video card cannot be installed.

    Here is the official ATI recommendation for one ATI Radeon HD 5770 video card:

    450 Watt or greater power supply with one 75W 6-pin PCI Express® power connector recommended.

    The recommendation is for the entire pc system.

    A good choice would be the Corsair VX450 available in the USA for $69.99. The final price after mail-in rebate is $59.99:

    My recommendation:
    Get a different case.
