The 5770 takes 1 six pin PCI-E connector and has a TDP of 108 watts, the 5830 takes 2 six pin PCI-E connectors and has a TDP of 175 watts. The 5850 also takes 2 six pin PCI-E connectors, but it's TDP is 151 watts (lolwut).

The real question is amperage, as your 430 watt is probably low on it. I wouldn't recommend anything higher than the 5770 if you're set on getting one of these three due to your lower end CPU and your power supply.

Agree with Borisof007, what is the amperage of your PSU? There's a sticker on it, read it and post again here... :)
