Yes, HD5770 is come with 2 versions, one is HD5770 2.0 and the other is HD5770 2.1 version.

Now, what is your motherboard? it has pcie slot, right? what version? 1.0? 2.0?
If you have 1.0 version then get that HD5770 2.0.

Many issues with 1.0 board running 2.1 cards...
So, play safe, get that HD5770 2.0 version... :) 
Also make sure you have an enough power from PSU...

All the std ASUS boards with the same chip set have a PCIe x 16 version 1.x slot so it is recommended that you get a card with version 2.0.
