How on earth would it break ? Really ... It's inside with your components, and the sort of "platform" all the graphics cards are made of are all made of the same material. Which is the only thing that could really "break".
Honestly, I have never heard of anyone breaking the surrounding plastic, and why would they ? It's a quality card, and performs much better than your 5770.

RAM sticks and CPU's aren't very solid, but hey, those are regular PC components.


About the size ... Most cases should handle it fine. Which case do you own ?

If you decide to buy a new graphics card I would go with a new, reliable PSU also.

But as far as the watt goes, you don't need anymore than 500W for the 5850.
It only pulls around 175W, and your CPU 125W at most. So, in theory, you don't need a new PSU nor more watt. But I would prefer a more stable one, if I were to buy a new graphics card.

It your PSU fries, it may take one or more component(s) with it. That would be the worst case.
