You should be just fine. The 5750 doesn't use much power (around 65 watts).

I5-750 @3.2 GHz, 4 gigs ram, Blu-ray burner, DVD burner, 80 Gig SSD, @ HDDs and 1Gig 5770 = just over 300 Watts. Do not know the QUALITY of your PSU.

Wife's system is a I3-540, 5670 GPU, 4 gigs ram and 1 HDD and 1 DVD burner on a Corsair 400 Watt PSU

^+1. For a continuous power 400W unit like the 400CX it will work fine. HOWEVER, for a no name "PASARIS" I wouldn't trust it. Sure, it should work, but there is a higher chance of killing your $120+ GPU.

No problem, in fact 350w is enough for your configuration include overclocking, but today buy PSU under 400w isn't recommended.

You will be fine. During typical gaming conditions it should draw at most 44w. FurMark will push it to 61w - 63w.

As a comparison, the HD 5750's performance is equivalent to the older HD 4850 which consumed 110w under typical gaming conditions, never seen it benchmarked using FurMark.

That is not what I said. Virtually all PSUs are switching mode PSUs. What I said was continuous power meaning the PSU can supply the rated/said wattage with in the ATX specification at 40-50C ambient temp/hot box temp. For example, all Corsair,PC Power units and some Antec units use this wattage in their advertisements which is the correct wattage to use, others state the MAX wattage for the PSU.
