Can I safely run Sapphire HD 5770 on my setup? I have only two upgrade options (XFX) HD 5670 1GB and (Sapphire) HD 5770. Which is the better option keeping in view the expenditure?

The 5770 has twice the stream process as the 5670, 800/400...your psu shows 27 amps on 12 volts,so that should be ok.... so the 5770 is the better deal, unless its more than twice as much

Now Sapphire seems to be dumping their 5xxx series chips first the 5850 for $139, now the 5830 for $109Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100297L Radeon HD 5830 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card w/ ATI Eyefinity Technology, so I would shop around as much as possible before pulling the trigger....

Ok, meanwhile i have a friend who is willing to sell me his Xfx gtx 260, question is is it a good card or a power sucking demon like 8800gt (which I once had, great performance but terrible power greedy and omg the heat!)

For performance flip a coin, they're fairly even with the 5770 edging the 260 in most things. For power the 5770 by a fair bit (30-40W less on average),

Hello, Stormy - how are you ?
I saw the link you provided, answers a lot of questions. The GTX 260 i am being offered is going to cost me 1500 rupees less (my country's currency) more or less than a new 5770. I'm really confused,especially about the power consumption/heat issue .. is it worth it (especially as i'm a little short on dough!)

In my opinion, the 5770 is best. 1500 Rupees is about 33.00 US. If you will get better performance and use less electricity, I would get the 5770.
