XFX HD5750 XXX & eVGA GTS450 & Powercolor HD5750 LP Review

In stark contrast to the eVGA card on the last page, the Powercolor HD5750 Low Profile box art is ‘fantasy based' and features a dude who is clearly miffed that someone has taken his horse. The front of the box also features a picture of the low profile design with dual fan.

The PowerColor bundle is spartan, with a driver disc, installation guide and a low profile bracket which you can use if you remove the VGA cable.

The card requires two slots (with this bracket anyway) and it is important to keep the area around the fans free to allow for air flow.

The card is clearly aimed at the home enthusiast audience as there is only a single DVI port, paired up with a full sized HDMI port and a removable VGA port. The HDMI port supports full 7.1 channel audio and this is controlled by an HD Audio device integrated in the GPU. You can use all three inputs at the same time if you wish. The more observant among you will already have noticed that there is no Crossfire connector on the card although you can run Crossfire across the PCI express bus. It takes a single 6 pin connector for power.

The heatsink on this card also actively cools the memory modules around the core.
