@NRT Stormy means that your 385W power supply is not enough. (Lower quality power supplys can put out less Watts that they are said to. A more HQ one can do what is said, and with something high-end you are guaranteed that it will perform a little better than it is said.)

so shud i change my psu ???

Doesn't change the fact that there is zero difference in the supported resolutions between the two cards you mentioned. The cards may have been made by MSI and Sapphire, but the chips themselves and any drivers for them come exclusively from AMD,

AMD Radeon

MSI just listed what it is capable of when using a dual link DVI capable monitor. Beside anyone buying a monitor that supports a resolution that high for gaming won't be buying a mid range video card to play on. Doesn't make much sense to match up a high-end monitor with a low-mid range video card, and have to scale back the resolution and/or settings just to play.

You can play around by filling this out, see if the result is under 385watts.

Then it is your choice. For the past 4 years I was running with a 300W config on a crappy 2 year old 385W psu (not my current config , and my old HDD is still very fine. (which means that there were not much voltage fluctuation, which kills the components on the long run)

The HD 5450 is a low end entry level card, that hasn't a chance of playing something like Crysis beyond low settings. The HD 5770 is a mid range card that can play it reasonably well and medium settings,

You want a card that can play games like Crysis and such at high settings, you're going to have to look much further up the video card ladder.

There is also a rather large difference in the power requirements between the two (use the 5750 in the chart),

ATI Radeon HD 5450 Review > Power Consumption & Temperatures - TechSpot Reviews

The 5450 would likely be OK on your current power supply; the 5770, I wouldn't risk it.

ati 5770. Too much, it would be around 6900 rupee
A GTS 450 would be 5700
an 5450 would be around 1700
you need an ati 6670 that would be around 5000 depending on the manufacturer.
