Yes, with HD5770 CF setup you'll see an increasing fps during games...
of course 2xHD5770 is better than a single HD5770, even for 20" monitor.

Well your resolution is 1680x1050,right ? if so then, although you will see a boost in performance, i would recommend getting a new monitor and the CrossFire, because 1 5770 can handle games fine on that res.

I agree on getting another 5770 for a performance boost, but i strongly recommend to get a new monitor with a higher resolution so that it can show its full potential.

Well CrossFire works fine with almost all new games,but in some few games that don't support it(like PES 2010),you have to disable it to get a smooth performance

2 5770's perform pretty much like a 5850(a little faster in some games).By going with a 5850/5870,you have an extra empty slot,less noise,heat than 2 5770s.
But adding another 5770 would cost you less.
As for PSU,here is what AMD recommends.
5870:
http://www.amd.com/us/products/desktop/graphics/ati-rad...
"500 Watt or greater power supply with two 75W 6-pin PCI Express® power connectors recommended (600 Watt and four 6-pin connectors for ATI CrossFireX™ technology in dual mode)"
5850:
http://www.amd.com/us/products/desktop/graphics/ati-rad...
"500 Watt or greater power supply with two 75W 6-pin PCI Express® power connectors recommended (600 Watt and four 6-pin connectors for ATI CrossFireX™ technology in dual mode)"
5770:
