I may not be too much help to many of you but I have done a fair bit of research on this item due to unrelated issues so I will save you the trouble.

This card worked well while it lasted but because I had a bad power supply it got fried. Not the card's fault but what can be said of it is that it gave me acceptable framerates, 20-30 fps, on Crysis with high settings and 2x anti aliasing.

However, because I was having overheating issues with this card because of the power supply, I researched general overheating problems with this Asus CuCore Radeon HD 5770. This card is built on a 40nm process, which means that it should run cooler than other cards that have a larger build process. Yet people who didn't have my power supply problems were reporting higher than normal temperatures.

The tech savvy ones took off the cooler to find that there were dimples and even waves in the copper surface that is used to transfer heat from the graphics chip to the heatsink and fan. When I took off my cooler I found circular grooves on the copper surface so this isn't just an isolated issue. Apparently the build quality of the CuCore cooler is less than stellar.

Now these temperatures are not going to fry the card. GPUs can handle nearly 100 degrees Celsius before they begin to see problems and the reports I've read said temps were no higher than 86 degrees. However, better cooled cards will rarely go over 75 degrees so you see the issue. If that still seems too high for you I suggest getting the Sapphire Vapor-X for thirty dollars more. You would have to spend that same amount to get an aftermarket cooler for the Card anyway.

If 10 degrees Celsius and the trouble of installing an aftermarket card are too much for you, I suggest passing on this card due to poor build quality.

Custom cooler appears to be insufficient at cooling the gpu under load while gaming. I at first thought the problem was caused by a single game by every game I tried (SC2, GTA4, Wolfenstein, etc) all lead to hard freezes when the card was push too much. Tried different drivers and tweaks from suggestion on the web to no avail. I ended up pulling the card and installing my old Sapphire Radeon 4850 512MB (which always have been running fine) and all games are running without a crash again. Asus is great as a motherboard manufacture. no doubt about that. But as a player in the performance graphics card space? not so much. This was my first and likely last Asus vga purchase.

This card is amazingly fast, we boosted the graphic quality to maximum and the resolution to 1280x1024 and the games ran like a charm. We tested Prince of Persia The Forgotten Sands, Need for Speed Shift and The Settlers 7 which are new graphic demanding games.

The graphic card is quite as claimed by Asus because the card has a large heat sink which contains 5.8oz of copper.

All in all I like this card and also very cheap.

Thanks,

This card doesnt reach 60 degrees which is cool and for people who doesnt do research..... Just don't install the Asus drivers and their overclocking software: SmartDoctor and the other ones and you'll get a very stable and fast Graphics processing unit. And by the way, Do these steps below. I hope this helps to other people who want to try the pleasure of having a great card like this. Voila! Enjoy your gpu to its very own limits without getting blue Screens of Death (BSODs) and without buffering errors. These things fixed my problems so I think these would fix yours, too.

"If you are experiencing random video driver crashes well playing games it is simple to fix all you need to do is,

1: Go into the Catalyst Control Center which should come with the ATI drivers.

2: Click the drop down menu in the top left hand corner and navigate to the "ATI Overdrive" section then you should see a little key or lock symbol click that so that the memory and GPU clock sliders are unlocked then click Apply and that's it." (Qt. from some site I can't remember)

I have this card packaged with a Phenom II x2 560 BE, and 2 gigs of ddr2 and am able to play Modern Warfare smoothly with full settings and GTA4 close to maxed out. Card was easy to install, and so far the only drawback I have found is it takes up two slots, but I already knew this when I bought it.

Although this is a review on an old order, and most likely people won't be buying it new, I wanted to throw up a review of caution. I've had these cards in 3 of our office Dell Precision 690 workstations running on both Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. In that scenario, these cards performed absolutely GREAT. I had no issues at all. It can do dual monitors but it can't do three monitors. However, it will not work properly on Windows 10 on any of these machines when playing video. So if you are looking to migrate to Windows 10 be very cautious. I have had to replace them with a newer version. I have had no issues with a Radeon HD 6 or 7 series. And I just replaced this card on one of the aforementioned workstations with a R9 270X and had no issues with video after installation on Win 10.

The issue I had is that if you begin to play any streaming video (think CNN.com, or Netflix or Plex, etc.) it would begin to play -- and work -- for about 5 minutes. At that point, the computer entirely froze. The screen froze. There was no mouse, no keyboard, no network response to shut down. The only way out was to power off with a hard power down (Press and hold or pull the plug).

I tried this with multiple drivers including the latest BETA drivers and the ones available direct from Windows. All of them failed on all machines. Every workstation with this card failed and locked up under Windows 10 playing streaming video. So you could just pull up a web page and one of those web pages have an embedded video that just begins to play and suddenly you'll be frozen and hopefully you saved all your work because you are now in a hard power off situation.

So the short is -- don't buy if you're on Windows 10 or planning to move that machine to Windows 10. If you have the card, go ahead and try it out but don't be surprised if you are forced to upgrade to a newer (higher than HD6 level to get it to work properly.
