So, my current GPU is inadequate for running current games at high settings, but i don't know if my computer can handle a powerful card, or if i should give up on it and buy a new one.
My PC's specs are:
HD radeon 5770 Graphics card
Intel i5 650 3,20 GHz processor
6GB DDR3 ram
350 watt PSU (Which i know is terrible, also needs an upgrade)
My screen is at 1680x1050 resolution.

Now, i had my sights set on a Radeon 7850/7870 or a Geforce gtx 560 TI/570. If i upgrade my power supply, can my computer run these cards without exploding from heat? Will these powerful cards be too held back by the other components?
