Yes. The standard GPU client installer works for both ATI and nVidia cards. With your 5770, you will need to add the -forcegpu ati_r700 argument to the client to get it to fold.

I have a GT240 in my son's rig and it does just a tad over 4000 on 353s. Stock btw. Not bad for $95 GPU.

I paid about $45 for each of my 9600GSOs, and the one I have in my main rig overclocked to 650/1836/1600 does about 4300-4500PPD on 353-point units. ATI cards are not ideal for folding. However, if you've already got one, it's certainly not a bad idea to put it to use.
