  1. Yes. Either version has 34A on the 12V rail, and two PCIe 6pin plugs. The 5770 only needs one so you'll be fine.
  2. I just had a 500-watt Earthwatts die on me after only six months of use. I upgraded to a Seasonic x650 and am very pleased.

    Thats unfortunate. My EA-500 is still going strong and its now two years old, you could probably get antec to replace yours if it died after 6 months. It will handle the 5770 fine, its a good little unit.
  4. It's good.
  5. 5770 uses very little power, same with the 2100,, i have experience with the antec 380,, super quiet and can easily handle your system, so 500 you will be good
