Also, if its the core i5 750, get the 4890. Significantly better than the 5750 or even the 5770.
It might not have DirectX 11 support, but so what, at 1280x1024, there will hardly be a difference, direct X 10 is good nough, i say.
Or save up some more then buy a ATI 5850 - more expensive, but u'll be set for at LEAST 3 years, 2 are GUARANTEED; it literally has 2 times the power of the 5770 or 4890.
Or Wait a couple months till March, see if NVIDIA releases anything worthwhile with their Fermi GPU's.
At the resolution of choice, the HD4870 is more than enough-mine ran at 1920x1200 well enough!
If you want to save a little power, and keep the noise down, the HD5750 is also more than enough at that resolution.
Even with AA enabled, the lower resolution will compensate for the 57xx cards only having a 128 bit memory bus, it is at these lower resolutions where the strong core makes the real difference, rather than memory bandwidth.
