The 5750 is a low powered card a decent 450 watt unit will be more than enough power to run it.

Out of your choices I would choose the silverstone unit.

Don't do what I did and buy a cheap 700W PSU that only seems to produce 300-400W

Silverstone PSU's are pretty well built that would be his best pick the other 3 not so good.

TT makes some good PSUs, not sure about their "lite power" line. Never heard of it before. The TT or the SS is going to be the best of those.

Too bad if you only have these options. The ANTEC EarthWatts 500 would be a great choice for you.
Anyway, I would go for a Silverstone ST50F ( not the ESSENTIAL model) which has been made made FSP.
The Silverstone Strider ST50F can deliver almost 600 W at below 50º C, it has two +12 V virtual rails, beeing the maximum combined current for them 36 A (432 W), it has plenty of connectors (2x6-pin conectors for video cards, six SATA and six molex connectors) and It has high efficiency which allows it running cool.
However, it hasn't an over power protection (OPP) circuit although It has another important protection as Over voltage protection(OVP), under voltage protection (UVP), over current protection (OCP), over temperature protection (OTP) and short-circuit protection (SCP).
Moreover, the MOV (Metal-Oxide Varistor) on the transient filtering stage is missing, which is essential to cut spikes coming from the power grid.
Anyway, you won't be wasting your money if you decide to buy this Silverstone PSU.

I have the Silverstone ST50F and I'm happy with it. It is very quiet. A bit quieter than a Hiper 550W I had but the overall quality didn't seem as good as the Hiper but the Silverstone is powering my PC OK so I like it to date (about 3 months).

The THERMALTAKE LitePower 450W would be a good choice too. It has also been made by FSP, it has a high efficiency (82-85%) and it presents the 80 Plus Bronze certification, it runs very quiet and it has a good DC voltage load regulation and low ripple/noise levels. All this with 5 years warranty.
Anyway, as I have said before, I would try to find an Antec Earthwatts 500 or even a Corsair VX450.

The 5770 uses very little power also so should be fine as well (only about 20W more than the 5750 under full load.)

The SILVERSTONE Strider ST50F-230 (by FSP) has much more power than enough to handle a 5770. It's a good PSU.
Anyway, the Antec EathWatts 500 W and the Corsair VX450 450W are better PSUs due to their higher efficiency and lower level of noise and ripple. Moreover, both have a MOV (responsible for cutting voltage spikes found on the power line) in the transient filtering stage. Another difference is that the unit from Silverstone doesn't feature over power protection (OPP) (this protection shuts down the PSU if it starts delivering more power than a configured trigger point).
Therefore, as I have written before, if I were you (for a few more bucks) I would go for the Antec EathWatts 500 W or the Corsair VX450 450W .

The power consumption of the 5750 is very low.
I have used it with a e7500 with a 19" monitor running at a resolution of 1440x900, on a casing with a generic '600w' power supply without any problems.
For you to have a peace of mind, any branded power supply will do.
