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.
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.
"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)
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.
