Okay, as i posted before. The 5850 + E5200 wont really work as good as the vga should do.
How about if i bought the Q9550, A good fan and possibly overclock it. And the 5770. How well will they perform together?

First of all i think a HD 5850 and a E5200 will work fine(you may need to push the CPU a bit)
Q9550 and HD 5770 will perform well together but in terms of gaming HD 5850/E5200 will give you better performance since HD 5850 performs better than HD 5770 too but if you haven't bought a Q9550 then don't do it since socket 775 is a dead socket now and its better to get an i5/i7 CPU.

Yeah i havent bought it yet, So i should get a really good fan. Overclock my E5200 to lets say 3.6ghz or 4.0ghz .. And get the 5850 HD. I cant afford an i7 + its mobo + a vga xD

The i7 + mobo + vga + rams and you know the rest. Like building a whole new computer.

Yes as i said OC'ng the CPU will help you,a 3.6/4Ghz Dual core + HD 5850 is a good combination for gaming

Another vote for the E5200 overclocked and a 5850. So what if the CPU limits the 5850 a little. When you do upgrade to i? or AMD you'll have a very competent video card to put into the system.

+1

5850 + Overclocked E5200 the better choice.

His E5200 is already overclocked, 3.2GHz if I remember correctly. People were telling him the 5200 was a bad chip because it lacked 2 cores and L2 cache.

Nothing wrong with a 3.2Ghz E5200!
Sure, having two extra cores is nice but lacking some L2 cache only drops performance what 2-5% At Most?!?
Some people are really clueless :pfff:
