This card worked well while it lasted but because I had a bad power supply it got fried.

It was disappointing that the resolution is not much different than the older Sharp standard quality monitor.

I hope this helps to other people who want to try the pleasure of having a great card like this.

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,

Ahmad Faiq,

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.

I am able to run bf4 on medium settings at 1440x900 with 70-120 fps. No issues out of this little thing what-so-ever. I've recently upgraded to a 7850 though to make my pc more future proof. This will be donated to my little brother, however. It's a beast of a card for what I paid for it ($40). Would definitely think about crossfiring these had I not already upgraded.
