The best bang for your buck is to add another 5770 to run in crossfire. For a completely different card the best in that price range is a 6850 or GTX 460, but two 5770s in Crossfire are generally faster than either option and either single card option is only a mild upgrade from a single 5770.

650watt OCZ if not very old should be fine for 2 x HD5770 in CF!

The 5770 doesn't suck up a whole lot of power. That PSU is more than enough for two of them in that system.
