It depends on games you are playing. If you play newest games on insanely high resolution, then it won't be enough, otherwise it should be ok.
I suggest you should read review of this card - most of them include testing in games, so it should give you an idea what to expect from card.

5770 is a very good mid-range card that will play most games on nearly maxed settings (lay off x16 AA) at 1080p.

i agree, the 5770 is a good graphics card and can play many games quite smoothly. I used to run one not long ago and it worked great! If you game all the time and need the highest possible settings and all that, then its not the best. But, if you are alright with lowering 1 or 2 settings or something, then its great.

So I got this here Amd phenom II x2 555 black edition, and so how do I unlock the cores? Do all I have to do is set it in BIOS? Because I found it there.

What motherboard do you have ? Not all motherboards support this.

it says it supports core unlocking, but its power phase seems odd, it says 8+1, shouldnt it be 8+2? Its probaly a typo. if its 8+2 then you should be safe to unlock and not blow the mobo .

It is an 8+1 power phase, and would be safe for unlocking.
