XFX HD5750 XXX & eVGA GTS450 & Powercolor HD5750 LP Review

Unfortunately we weren’t all born millionaires, because XFX would need to hire more staff so we could all run these beauties in CrossfireX. Today we bring you all right down to earth and focus on the competitive and highly lucrative £100 price point. Make no mistake, while we all drool over £900 video cards, the low end cards are where the biggest sales are generated.

Today we are looking at three products from leading manufacturers XFX, PowerColor and eVGA.

The eVGA card is a GTS450 which runs at 823mhz core (reference is 783mhz), shaders are 1645mhz (reference is 1566mhz) and memory is 900mhz (3.6Gpbs effective, same as reference). Even though it is an overclocked board, eVGA are selling it as their ‘regular’ card and you can pick it up for £106 right now. This is the most expensive card on test today.

The Powercolor HD5750 low profile is a reference clocked card, weighing in with a 700mhz core and memory configured to 1.15ghz. It is far from a boring design however as the card is built around a custom PCB design with a dual fan cooler. Powercolor are calling it their ‘Low Profile’ Edition and it seems to be an ideal pairing for a media center build. We have no price for this card, but we have been informed it will be targeted around £100 inc vat.

Last, but not least we have the XFX HD 5750 XXX Edition which is an OCUK exclusive model. This operates at 740mhz core and the 1GB of GDDR5 is running at 4800mhz effective. To make this card even more enticing it is a single slot design built around another custom XFX design. This is a pre order and you can pick it up for a wallet friendly £95 inc vat.

Today KitGuru finds out just what you can pick up for £100.
