I was looking at getting an ati 5850
however given that i will be playing at 1600x1050 would a 5770 be a more economically sound choice

Depends what you are playing. The 5850 will only be noticeably faster in graphics heavy games like far cry2 and such. If you play with AA the 5850 might be worth it.
If you're just going to play Wow, Fallout 3, or Half life 2 the 5770 would be fine.

5850 will good for future games, if u can afford that then go for it...
Make sure u have enough power on your PSU.
