Ok, i have a asus 5770 with a 2500k. the 5770 in a EXTREME bottleneck to my cpu, so i need to upgrade.

I want the asus gtx 560 (i'm a asus fanboy...lol) but i don't have all the money right now. so i'm considering selling my 5770 for 100$ (hopefully i can get that much) and use a old radeon 2400 that i have in the mean time... so, do you think i could make a better move? like cf my 5770 with another 5770? or what?...

Getting a $100 for your 5770 is optimistic. Going with GTX560 or higher card is a good plan.

dang... bro, that's true. i don't even see any bids on them on ebay for over 80$... you think i should just CF my 5770? cuz i can get one really cheap for like 80$, and then mid next year just get a gtx 660?

If your PSU can handle it it is the cheap solution and not a bad one!

A quality one will! 600 meets what manufacturers recommend.
