Hi Stalker123, :D

Yes, you could use those cards on that Mobo, BUT.

You will need the size of the card to make sure it will fit inside your existing case. The length of the card may mean you have to move a hard drive up or down a bay if it impinges on it.

Review 5760 > http://www.bit-tech....d-5670-review/1

Both cards do not need a separate power connection as they get there power from the PCI-E slot.. Specifications for the 5770, > http://www.amd.com/U...overview.aspx#3

Make sure to get the card with 1GB of memory.

Should have also mentioned that as you will be generating more heat, make sure you have adequate case cooling.

Note that you need a 450 to 500w PSU.

You are good to go then.

Keep an eye on your temps for a couple of weeks.

If you have not worked inside a PC before.

Turn off the power when every working on a PC.
Take anti static measures before touching anything, even parts not installed in the PC.
Handle parts by the edges as oils from your fingers can cause problems on sensitive electronic circuits.
