For about 10 more £ you can get this, which performs better.

Either card will be fine, however.

But the GTS 450 is a much better overclocker.

Actually they both overclock decently and for two you can't assume everyone is overclocking.

No, both cards will do fine. The one I linked is better but costs a little more. Both will run off of a 500W powersupply, but make sure that it has a 6pin PCI-E connector.

I dont know how stable 5770s are when overclocked, but I do know that the GTS 450 overclocks easily and is stable and you can notice the difference after overclocking as well.
