Radeon 7770 is a good option and its about the same as a 6870. And yes power wise you should be able to run any of these graphics cards you have listed on that PSU

....No the Radeon 7770 is about the same as the Radeon 6850, not the 6870.

HD 6870... nuff said.
Your lacking though. 2GB isn't enough these days if your a gamer(I assume you are since you are buying a mid-high end GPU). I suggest buying another 2GB stick

first upgrade your psu and then go with 6870 if you can.unfortunately you have one of the worst power supply on planet which is capable of damaging your system.a quality 550w is enough for a single card setup.
and also upgrade your ram to atleast 4GB.

The Corsair CX600 should be perfect for that build.

Like the others said, the HD 6870 is the way you should go.
From a GTS 250, a GTX550Ti, would be little to no improvement, an HD 7750, maybe a minor 5-10% upgrade, a HD 6850, should see a significant boost, and a HD 6870, even better.

And buy more RAM. If I'm not mistaken, you'be got an extra slot for adding another 2 GB stick, so do that.

My advice:

If you can, get a new PSU and a 6870. But that could be out of your budget. So my idea is get a 7770. It should run fine with your PSU. But also, upgrade your RAM. 4 GB would be the minimum, while 8 would be ideal. RAM is cheap these days.

IMO 7770+Ram is better than 6870, even if it somehow manages to run on your PSU.

Good luck choosing.

    But I strongly recommend you get the HD 6870. Its better than any other cards you listed.
