Hi,

My pc:

My HD 4850 died (black screen after few minutes in heavy load) and I need a new card.
But my budget is limited to a AMD Radeon HD 7770 or a Nvidia GTX 560 SE.
Which one of these is better?

Well, the two are fairly similar in capabilities (the AMD will beat the nVidia or vice versa almost equally, based on game designs). The AMD is a lower wattage chipset with leaner power requirements and less heat. Some people gripe about AMD drivers (which I don't, I have just as much issue with nVidia software), so it really comes down to what you are comfortable with.

My vote, HD 7770. Rock-solid GPU with low heat output, and far less draw than your HD 4850 and the 560 SE (80W vs 270W & 205W).
