I'm considering investing in a 2007 Octa Core Mac Pro, but it doesn't include a Video Card. I've been thinking about the 6770, as it has 1GB of VRAM, and is still somewhat capable in 2019. The one I have my eye on is an Apple one, and comes with the cables, but I'm not sure if it would run on El Capitan, which is the Operating System I plan on using after I do some stuff to get it working on it. I'm not sure if I should go for the 5770 (basically the same thing), the 4870, or the 6770, as they're all similarly priced.

5770 and 6770 are basically identical, as you said. I wouldn't get the 4780. It's a generation older and won't do as well for web acceleration or video playback.
