Overall a good purchase if you get your's on special. Compared the rest of my computer, the fan on this is the loudest. Good mid range card for the price.
Runs fairly cool, although could be better for the fan noise. Most games won't really benefit from the extra GDDR5 if you're using 1920x1080 or below. If you're looking for a cheaper option to run current and upcoming games on decent setting you can't go wrong with this.
The Powercolor 5770 is an entry level gamer card, which can most likely handle all of last year's games at 1920x1200 resolution max. Anything above that and you'll have to spend 100ish dollars more to upgrade to a 58XX card.
i buy it because it was one of the cheapest dx11 card.. but it was a bad idea to buy this card. For 20$ more, you can buy the same model (ati 5770) with 1go of ram (instead of 512mo) and with a display port for triple screens rig instead of 2.
It overclocks like a champ and gives the 260GTX a run for it's money. The impressive thing of the PowerColor HD5770 is the fact that it uses such a small amount of power. If you are looking for a new video card to get you ready for DX11 and give you some great results at an affordable price, I would take a serious look at the PowerColor HD5770.
I bought it 2 months ago to replace my 8800GT that i had since 2 years and i'm very please with his performance. It's very quiet in idle and in charge. I tought it's run very hot but no, the arctic cooling fan make a good job. A great card with great performance in Dirt2 and CODMW2.

I bought this card to casually game on MW2 and CSS. I get from 50fps to 100fps in CSS and my play has noticeably improved. On both MW2 I find that playing at 1280x800 gives me smooth frame rates, however going to 1680x1050 looks sharper and crisper but loses the smoothness and can be jerky in intense action sequences.
The card runs pretty quiet. I don't like noisy computer equipment, so when I say it is quiet enough, then that means it should work for most people. Temperatures are about 45 Celcius and 45% fan speed for normal Windows activity. The temperature goes up to 65 Celcius with normal game play. Also the fan kicks in louder, greater than 55% during games, which doesn't matter much since with headphones or in game you won't hear it.
Very nice card, that 5770 is not for hardcore gamer. it's a mid-high end card for casual gamer. I Love mine and if i have one to suggest to anyone looking for a nice card, i will definately recomment this one !
