Um, the only difference between those two builds is the PSU, main board and the graphics card.
Why are you replacing the "old build" so soon?

You may not notice a worthwhile difference in performance between a HD 4770 and HD 5750. I'd jump up to at least a HD 5850, a 5870 would be even better. Or, if you have an extra $700 laying around, grab a HD 5970. :)
