There's a big difference between the 4770 and the 4890. What do you plan to use the PC for?

4890 or gtx275 should be okay.

5850, gtx285 or 5870 would be better, but a lot more expensive.

If you're going with windows 7, try to find a 5850 (they're hard to find in stock, but have dx11 support). If you don't care about the dx11 support, there are some good prices on the 4890.
