I think the primary concern you should be having is, will that crap 750w PSU power said card IF it fits?

Seriously, I'd upgrade that PSU before your GPU. It may state 750w but it's no better than a generic 500w according to reviews.

As far as I can see, no the card won't fit.

not to mention cable management... All you have to do is look up the length of your 5770 and then the length of the new card. Whatever extra length you have add that to the end of your 5770 and if it fits then you're good, if not then you're screwed.

You need a 3.5" to 5.25" bracket and move the HDD to the 5.25" slot. Then move out the HDD cage for the HDD. This is the only way that the video card can fit in it.

the video card is 10.7 " long
the card only requires 500 watts psu
you can get a 3.5" to 5.25" conversion tray and put the hd in a 5.25" bay

unless you take the HDD case on the bottom and transfer your HDD to the 5.25"
then the answer is NO, it wouldnt fit
