Hi.

1- Try to get a better RAM with CL 6, 7 or 8. This G.Skill 1600 are much better for only $10 more.
2- Here are the system requirements for the 5770.

ATI Radeon™ HD 5770 System Requirements

PCI Express® based PC is required with one X16 lane graphics slot available on the motherboard
450 Watt or greater power supply with one 75W 6-pin PCI Express® power connectors recommended (600 Watt and two 6-pin connectors for ATI CrossFireX™ technology in dual mode)
Certified power supplies are recommended. Refer to http://ati.amd.com/certifiedPSU for a list of Certified products
Minimum 1GB of system memory
Installation software requires CD-ROM drive
DVD playback requires DVD drive
Blu-ray™ playback requires Blu-ray drive
For an ATI CrossFireX™ system, a second ATI Radeon™ HD 5770 graphics card, an ATI CrossFireX Ready motherboard and one ATI CrossFireX Bridge Interconnect cable per graphics card (included) are required


The recommended PSU is for the entire system. I would go for a little more, 500W PSU. This Corsair 550W or Antec 550W are good PSUs.

That depends on where you actually live. If you are in some big American city then you might have access to some very competitive stores. I live in Canada on an island on the west coast so do just about all of my computer shopping on-line, mostly Newegg.ca.

The 450 w power supply is the minimum for that video card a little larger wouldn't hurt. I would also suggest a lower Cas no. for your Ram. look at this.

^Yeah it's enough but like I say up I would go for a PSU a little more bigger just for the case.

Get a 500W, you don't want your new PSU at its limits - As a PSU ages it can produce less juice which means without knowing it your machine can start to get underpowered which can damage things.
The price difference between a 450W and a 500W should be very minimal

This two options are very good for ur rig:

1- Corsair 550W
2- Antec 550W i would go for this because is a Bronze Certified PSU, if u want wait for this or go with the Corsair.

See full information here

Basically the difference between both Plus Silver and Plus Gold is that the 2nd one is more efficient that the 1st one.
