Cracking mid-range graphics card at a really good price

I have the xfx radeon 5750 and it makes a poor celeron driven machine with a 300w PSU into a great little gaming machine. I can run COD black ops, pro evo 2011, bulletstorm, and crysis 2 more or less perfectly on medium settings. The description below (from amazon) seems to describe the features of the 5770 but the 5750 offers similar features

The VTX3D HD5700 series. Designed for demanding DirectXR 11 games at HD resolutions and high settings, VTX3D HD5700 series offers the intense gaming performance and unrivaled image quality.
VTX3D HD5770 series supports ATI’s exclusive Eyefinity Technology, with dual DL-DVI / HDMI / Display Port onboard design, it can run up to three displays from a single card and let all gamers enjoy the “wrap-around” gaming experience like never before.

The HD5770 series is compatible with ATI Stream technology, enables demanding data parallel compute tasks from the CPU to GPU,accelerate the daily application and do more with your PC. The HD5770 has 800 stream processors and boosts your gaming performance with 1.36 teraFLOPs of computing power.

The HD5770 series will be the best choice for those gamers who are looking for the great balance of performance and price.

this requires a 450w minimum psu so think you are lucky to get this working.I only have a 300w psu and use a pny gt220 which only requires a 300w psu so was interested as an upgrade.

I used extreme.outervision.com/psu…jsp and calculated the total power consumption of my machine with the radeon 5750. Results = 290w recommended and 230w as minimum.

Put your spec in and see if you'll be ok. The graphics card draws about 85w

hutchir9 is right. 450w would be the minimum requirement, since no psu ever provide full capacity of the stated max power output especially after it get hot.

Chet i'm curious when you calculated the total power consumption did you include all your usb divice as well?

Chet you are spot on. Power recommendations are just that. They are probably a legal requirement aslong as you don't lose sight of common sense by trying to power up a couple gtx 590's on your power supply you should be fine

I did; I included 3 usb devices (rather than the 2 I use). I think having a celeron procssor may play a part (low power?!). All I have is the processor, one hard drive, 1 2gb stick of ram, 1 dvd/rw drive, 2 usb items and a couple of fans. And of course the graphics card. Been working a dream for the past 2 months; hopefully continues :-). Actually I even overclocked the CPU from 2ghz to 2.4ghz and still works fine. Maybe just lucky!

Can anyone advise me on whether this would be worth getting compared with the slightly cheaper Radeon HD5670. They both seem to use around the same amount of power from what I can make out.

Thanks

The main difference is the HD 5750 requires a 6pin PCI-E power connector and the HD 5670 does not, but the HD 5670 is a fair bit less powerful. The HD 6670 is due to hit the shelves any day now which has the lower power consumption of the HD 5670 but the performance very close to the HD 5750.

Thanks for the reply

I went for this deal in the end.

BOUGHT THIS CARD
I CAN PLAY CRISIS 1 ON VERY HIGH SETTINGS WITH THIS.
REMEMBER YOUR PROCESSOR PLAYS A BIG PART IN GAMING.
IN A PENTIUM 4 SYSTEM THIS WONT PLAY IT ON VERY HIGH. BUT WITH AN I5 3.06GHZ WITH DDR3 MEMORY I HAVE NOT FOUND A GAME THAT GLITCHES OR SLOWS YET WITH THIS CARD.

My son is using this with an i5 2500K. Pretty impressive so far and it overclocks no problem with the supplied software.
