Hello, I'm looking into upgrading my gpu. I currently have a Nvidia GeForce GT 240 and cant run games as well as id like to right now in looking around the price range of the HD 5770 or the GTX 460.

Which one would give me more bang for my buck?

Games i Play

World of Warcraft
Garrys mod
Star wars the force unleashed 1&2
and alot more of the unreal 3 engine games

I want to play

Medal of Honor 2010
COD Black ops
DIablo III
Starcraft II

Now another problem I come across is my power supply what would be the cheapest/most reliable psu to power the cards above? My other Specs are

Biostar A770e
AMD athlon II x3 440 @3.0ghz
3Gig DDR2 RAM
320gig 7200Rpm HDD sata
DVD burner IDE

Currently running with a Startech 350w

Other gpus WILL be considered if around the same price as the other 2 and PCI express 2.0 x16

Thank you for your time

How about (man I think I am in love with this card) the GTS 450? It can perform the same as a 5770 and I think for Starcraft 2 will perform better. Quite low power requirements too!

Although having said that the GTX 460 does kick a lot of butt! You won't go wrong with that card! Not too sure about its power requirements though....from that point of view the 5770 is very good!

yeah, for 350W PSU i won't dare to run HD5770 or GTX460.
What about save some money and get higher PSU first?
You can't go anywhere with that "Startech" 350w PSU...

Woah! I must've skimmed over the 350W PSU! In that case I pull back my earlier posts! It isn't safe or sensible to run the above cards on that PSU! With that you're more in the 4670, 5670, GT 240 range!

Okay, GTX460 is faster than HD5770, so definitely go for GTX460.
For PSU, get trusted brand like Corsair, Antec, Seasonic, OCZ, PCP&C, SilverStone with 500W minimum.
