XFX HD5750 XXX & eVGA GTS450 & Powercolor HD5750 LP Review

The XFX HD5750 XXX card is shipped in a stylishly designed box with adheres to the current ‘robotic' theme which the company use with most of their products.

The inner box shows the card encased in a durable plastic coating. The other side has the name of the company, and detailed below …yes, in case you weren't aware … you just bought a graphics card.

The bundle contains a power adapter, a ‘Do not disturb' sign, a driver CD and various literature to help with installation. Although our very early bundle didnt ship with a game, XFX are supplying a free copy of Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 which you can access from Steam. Getting a free game with a £95 video card is rather unusual and certainly adds value to the package.

In complete contrast to the Powercolor low profile card on the last page, the XFX HD5750 is a flat, fat card. It is a single slot design and will be ideal for people with smaller chassis. Unlike the Powercolor card there is a Crossfire Connector.

The rear is home to two (pink and rather pretty) dual link DVI ports and a mini displayport for added connectivity. The card, like all others on test today only requires a single 6 pin power connector.

This is a custom design by XFX which they have used before on their single slot HD5770 card. Hopefully the noise levels are just as good.

The heatsink on the XFX card also cools the memory around the GPU core which is a bonus.

Two very different designs from XFX and Powercolor as you can see in the images above. The XFX card is flatter and broader and the PowerColor design is thin and deeper.
