GPU Upgrade

Hello everyone!
Ive recently built a cheap gaming rig of sorts
I'm Looking into Upgrading my GPU to a ATI 7770 http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX39011
What i would like to know is would i be able to power it?
Would my CPU bottleneck or is it even fast enough at stock speeds?
Would I need to Over Clock my CPU for my GPU for best performance?
Will My CPU melt with the stock cooler if i overclock?

My specs
Intel I5 2400 Not OC stock cooler
ATI 7750 OC
500 GB HDD
1 Terabyte External Hard drive
Corsair XMS3 4 GB RAM
MOBO is GA-B75M-D3H
500 Watt PC/Power & Cooling
Monitor is (1024X768) No plans to upgrade
case is a freebie not sure what kind (lots of vents)
Please no new-egg links their shipping is killer.
I'll be buying from Memory express
Sorry for all the questions

  1. yeah you can power it just fine but its not really much of an upgrade from an 7750-OC.

    here you can see a stock 7750 vs 7770 and several other cards in gaming benchmarks.
