If you're a 1920 x 1200 gamer and you not only enjoy the higher detail but also appreciate it, then spend the extra money and buy the HD 5770. However, if you're one of those people who own a 1920 x 1200 monitor though for productivity reasons and you only game to kill a bit of time here and there, the HD 5750 is a good option. At medium graphics quality settings, you're not going to have an issue getting a smooth game experience. In all honesty, it would be just as smooth as a HD 5770; the difference is it just won't look as pretty.
1680 x 1050 users on the other hand should find this model a fantastic option, we're seeing above 30 FPS in our intensive games like Far Cry 2 with our settings at Very High. Future and more intensive games shouldn't have a problem at 1680 x 1050 with settings anywhere from Medium to Very High depending on how well the game is coded.
Really if you don't game above 1680 x 1050, the HD 5770 isn't the best option, with the HD 5750 offering us the number we need in games at max settings - the HD 5770 is going to offer only higher numbers, which won't impact on your overall game experience that much. The HD 5770 isn't that much faster either that you could turn AA on in your games; performance would just be hit too much.
Saying all that though, if you have the money the HD 5770 is a bit more "future proof" when it comes to playing future and more intensive games. If you're a 1680 x 1050 gamer, you're going to be happy with this model or the HD 5770. If you have the money for the higher model, we suggest buying it, if not then buy the HD 5750, either way we're sure you'll be happy.
Sapphire have put on a nice little spread with the model as well, not only do we see SimHD included, but a Dirt 2 coupon too, and with the performance we're seeing from the model, today we can feel confident that the HD 5750 is going to be able to run the game at 1680 x 1050 with some impressive detail.
In the past it felt like a chore to review these mid-range cards, as ATI and really NVIDIA work harder with each release, these middle of the pack video cards become more and more impressive. Really the HD 5750 is just another great video card that falls into the already great Radeon HD 5000 series line up from AMD.
