Now, let’s get on to the performance of the card itself. I was pretty impressed with the HD 5770. The card(s) performed beautifully in all the single-person shooters and MMORPGs I tried them on. The graphics were smooth and I was able to max out the graphics settings of most games without any noticeable performance degradation. The ATI Radeon HD 5770 is a good midlevel to high end card, ranking 45th on videocardbenchmark.net at the time of this review. However this type of technology advances so rapidly that a card like the GeForce GTX 580 is already twice as powerful as this one, and of course about three or four times more expensive.
Overall, the XFX ATI Radeon HD 5770 Graphics Card is a great performer and worthy of consideration. If you have the slots why not get a pair of them and run them in unison with ATI Crossfire, a connecting cable which allows you to use two or three processors together for petter performance. Beware however that you’ll need to buy the ATI Crossfire cable separately, since the XFX HD 5770 doesn’t come with one. I learned this the hard way and had to run all over town looking for one before a friend finally gave me an extra.
