The HD 5000 series across the board does a good job of making games playable at certain resolutions. If you're a resolution fanatic then the HD 5870 or HD 5970 is going to be the best card for 2560 x 1600 users. Are you mainly a 1920 x 1200 user? Well, the HD 5850 is a great option and if you're not a huge gamer but you like to dabble a bit at the resolution, the HD 5770 does a pretty good job of holding its own.
For 1680 x 1050 users, this is a resolution that has become one of the most common wide screen resolutions due to the aggressive pricing associated with monitors that carry support for the resolution. The HD 5770 is a great choice if you've got the money. If you really want to crank up the detail you might even find yourself looking at a HD 5800 series card.
If you don't want to blow the bank, though, the HD 5750 does a good job at the resolution. Having already checked out a few models, we'll be seeing how the GIGABYTE version stands up. With a pretty nice looking fan we hope that it's able to put out impressive numbers in the cooling department along with some nice numbers at 1680 x 1050.
Let's get stuck into the package first before we move onto the card and its specifications. Once we've done the boring stuff we'll get into the benchmarks and then wrap it all up. So without further ado, let's move forward.
