The extra mile that Corsair went through with their sleeved extensions also played into my decision. Now that I've got it in my case I'm glad I purchased it. The look is extremely sweet and on top of that we get a 7 year warranty that cannot be beat.

+1 Corsair

If you plan to overclock your GPU's as well then it would probably be advisable to go to a 1,000 watt unit. Others who are more familiar with the power needed for the 5770's can give you a more definitive answer.
Good luck...

850w-1kw PSU for a 5770?? Even with an overclock on the cpu and gpu would not warrant him needing that.

Thats fine, IMO, I saw someone running SLI (GTX570s IIRC) on a Similar PSU and an OC'd 2500k as well.
