Ok so whats your main concern here ?

If its budget then i suggest you take a look here http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/HIS/Radeon_HD_5670_I... and see what performance suits the games you play and your budget best. It lists most of the cards you mentioned.
A 5750 would be a good balance of budget and performance in my opinion.

A non brand PSU is never a good idea as they very often do not supply the power they say they can and dont feed a nice steady stream of power like a good quality PSU will.
If you talking about a Dell or HP PC that you are upgrading then its not such an issue as both use decent PSU's however something from a PC shop with a no name PSU would have me worried.

Check to see which cards need extra power cables conected and which dont. Those that dont should be fine on what im guessing is the PSU in you machine already ?

A generic unit can actually fail thus killing your system if you put a load that the unit can't sustain and most are over rated as to their actual performance.

I rarely trust local shops for any thing and please do some research before you buy any thing and I have learned the hard way.

I think you would be able to find Sapphire in Bangaldesh. They are one of the main suppliers in Asia. I am from India and we are loaded with Sapphire ATI cards. And yes, at your resolution the HD5750 does the job quite well.

BTW, which brands of PSU are available in your country?

Anything like Corsair, Gigabyte, Cooler Master, Antec, Tagan, Seasonic, Silverstone available?

P.S. - PSU is not a brand, its a PC component. Which is also known as SMPS.

he said he has an unbranded psu not graphics card. the 5670 will play all games at 1280x1024, the only issue is at what settings it will play them at. im pretty sure it will handle at least medium settings depending on your cpu. its also has low power usage.

Well, some research - 5770 needs a 450- w , 500 w psu to have enough legroom for other components and oc//

well HD5770 would work on a corsair cx400w power supply but that has 30a on the 12v rail. just checked the thermaltake on newegg and it says it has 2 12v rails, 16a and 14a but it does at least have 1 pci-e 6 pin connector that the HD5770 needs.
