good price - mediocre card, outperformed by the much older 4890.

Surely that's a bit irrelevant? If you can actually find a 4890, or even a 4870, they're very unlikely to be as cheap as this.

You can easily pick up a 4870 or 4890 second hand for cheaper than £50, so if you are buying for your younger ones, and they don't play the latest games, you can get some good grunt for your money.




could anyone recommend me a decent graphics card for playing movies in hd, through hdmi etc?

Not needed for games, just want something that will play HD movies, HDMI, bluray movies, and have hd pictures as desktop etc without slowing my computer down. Or bankrupting me.

Of course, but comparing the value of second hand to brand new is always hard!

Cold... 5830 is going for £80 @ Aria and overclockers uk

ati radeon 4350 go for about £25. low profile, silent, bluray/hd playback

All these voting cold need to realise this card fits in a single slot ... so comparing it to older, faster and likely much larger cards is not helpful!

I bought one of these last week from Ebuyer to replace a NVIDIA 9600 GT in my Dell XPS 420. I don't have room for a double height card but this HD 5770 fits perfectly and given me a HUGE performance boost.

So if like me you're limited by physical space and a smaller PSU, this card is amazing value.

HOT +++

I currently have an ATI Radeon HD 5450 in my machine and a spare PCIe slot. I want to add more monitors to my set-up, would this card be compatible with my HD 5450 card? I'm not interested in games or watching movies on my system.

Could I add a cheaper card that will work with my current set-up? What are the compatibility issues with adding extra graphics cards?

Good price - Yes
Mediocre card - Please elaborate.
Outperformed by 4890 - Why is that?
Hot and thank you bob regis for your
original post.

I specified the 5770 on a PC from PC
Specialist. I have found it very good
at anything I throw at it.

I have this card and it is pure mid-range, imo good value for the money. If you can get a faster card for the same price then go for it, but if you're looking to get superb performance in Bad Company 2, Far Cry 2 & Bioshock 2 this card is excellent. Crysis Warhead, Lost Planet 2 and the ilk will mince it to death though unless you lower the settings.

I should add in its favour it doesnt need much power, I run it on a 380w with quad core cpu, bluray drive and 1x HDD.

I agree with this guy ^ For DX10 games i think this will perform well at 1280x720 at max but any higher and you may need 2 of these

What uses the most juice out of this card and a ATI Radeon 1950 pro? also which one is the best, thx

Radeon 1950 pro isnt compatible with DX10 as far asI know and is quite outdated now, the 5770 is a much faster and will play your modern titles, doesnt draw much more power either, if at all.

thanks did some reserach, am hearing the
hotukdeals.com/dea…e=3
radeon 5450 (£25 shops) and the radeon hd 4830 (£35 ebay - but only 512MB) seem to be have MUCH MUCH better benchmarks and are around same price. What am i missing? there must be a reason why their bechmarks are so much better but price is same?

any clue?

If they weren't out of stock, it would be a great deal.

The evidence to support my comment is here :
techpowerup.com/rev…tml

Its still a good deal at a good price, people should just be aware that the lower 5XXX series are very much a "side-grade" from the previous 4XXX series - which can now be had for peanuts (if your willing to go 2nd hand). The 5's are quieter, more efficent and run cooler + offer DX11 support (not that helps much however this particular card is definatly mediocre.

For the other post regarding card size - you seem a little confused 99 out of 100 its card length that is an issue with GPU/case size. WIdth is only a consideration in SLI / CF setup's and this is becoming less and less of an issue as mobo producers nearly always space the PCI-E (16x) slots in a way that comfortably accomodates an SLI config for the GPU's being released today.

i paid double for this card on release, as my shuttle system only takes single slot cards, was the best around at the start of the year (single slot wise)

@Tyranicus ... AMD 4890 image ...

http://www.productwiki.com/upload/images/amd_ati_radeon_hd_4890.jpg

This IS a double height card that would not fit in my case or many others. It's one of the reasons that single slot solutions like the HD5770 are being released as AMD have realised that people want power even if they don't have the physical room.

If someone is going to say X is better than Y then you have to factor in the physical size of the card! The 4890 might be a better card but if it won't physically fit its as useful as a chocolate fire guard!
Edited by: "Q-Tec" 21st Jun 2011

Now you are really confusing yourself! The 4890 is a single slot solution. - fitted with a double pci bracket. (for the cooler) This affects the cards width, not its height. And you can easily replaced this with a single slot pci bracket for £5 if you are inclined to do so.

The dimensions of a 4890 are 24cm (length) x 11cm (height) x 3.8 (width). For comparison the 5770 dimensions are 21.6cm (length) x 11cm (height) x 3.8 (width).

As intially suggested the card length is the dimenstion that causes GPU/Case/mobo clashes not its "height" (by which i think you mean width). Hope you find this info useful.

In my case, that extra 2.4 cm would be fatal, there's just no room for it! Besides, (correct me if I'm wrong) the 5770 is quieter, cooler, less power demanding and directX 11 support with almost identical fps to the 4890.

Be glad it's not a HD5870 or a HD6990

HD5870 is 28cm
HD6990 is 30.5cm

The HD4890 is a big card, only just squeezes into my case.

Width can be an issue if you need the port on the motherboard for some other function.

For the guy who said you can get a HD4890 for less than £50, where???

I can quite believe it - GPU length can be a rig breaker. Everything you said about the 5770 is correct, except it is almost 20% slower on average than the 4890.

I suppose the fact that I have the factory overclocked edition, narrows the gap a little and means I haven't really considered it. Maybe if we think of this as an extra £20 for a refined 4890 it might be a little more appealing? Even if I had the space, I would still choose this as I hate a noisy, hot machine

Cripes! This was a simple post for a good card
at a good price. Look where it finished.

Aye that what happens when "internet experts" start handing out incorrect advice

If we're comparing 4890 with 5770, it should be noted that the 4890 draws 190W TDP vs 108 for the 5770. This was a significant factor in buying this card as a replacement for a dead card in a somewhat underpowered Dell system.

en.wikipedia.org/wik…its

Plus you can't get a 4890 new under £130 so it's a fairly false comparison. Warranty and knowing the history of the item is worth something to me.




Is this a low profile card?

No. 11cm high.

Could someone in the know please recommend a decent card which is low profile (8cm) ?

Either a GTS450 or HD5750 both fit the bill.

If like me your missing the vouchers for the free games
I got this from the Dabs website -
If you find any voucher missing from the box, please email duncsdeals@dabs.com to claim

Well mine has just arrived and it's not the HDMI version as listed on the website... I've got the dual-DVI and DisplayPort edition... also the vouchers are missing so I'll be firing them an email like the previous poster

Not happy about the HDMI situation! Has anyone else bought one and have the same problem?

In the specifications however it states it has a Display Port with no mention of HDMI, I've got to admit I didn't even notice that as was using DVI only.
