I wouldn't do it.

At such a low resolution, the 5850 should be perfectly fine.

The 7770 is a downgrade in most things, maybe everything. So I wouldn't.

7770 are more like 6850 or 460. and don't look at overclock performance as a base to determine which card are faster because OC was never a guarantee thing.

Unless you really want lower power consumption, don't bother. The 7770 is actually a downgrade from a 5850. You might be able to get the 7770 to be a little faster than your 5850, but only if you can achieve a good overclock, which isn't guaranteed.

If you really want an upgrade, you should be looking at a 7870 at minimum. Even then, it likely won't make a real difference over your 5850 at your resolution, the 7870 is really meant for 1080p gaming.
