Final Thoughts


While we didn't test at 2560 x 1600, we continued to use the same image quality presets as we do when testing out higher-end video cards, which means that our test games are most of the time running at their maximum settings.


With this in mind, we can see that quite often at these presets, the HD 4770 isn't that far behind the 30 FPS minimum we want to see at 1680 x 1050. With a small detail drop, we would be able to get up and over that 30 FPS minimum and that is good news. Depending on the game, you'll probably find that you're able to get over 30 FPS at 1920 x 1200 at lower quality image settings.


As for the package of the HD 4770, it doesn't disappoint with a number of applications included and while the cable department did look a bit bare, when you have a look at what's going on in the I/O department with native VGA and HDMI being seen, you can understand why there weren't many cables included.


At just over $100 there isn't a whole lot you can expect from these video cards, but ATI have done a really good job with the Radeon HD 4770 by packing a lot of new technology into the model, which ultimately results in quite an impressive product comparatively.


If you're looking for a Radeon HD 4770 which gives a pretty impressive package and moves away from the default cooler, the Sapphire Arctic Cooling version we have here today is a good option. At $114.99, you've really got a lot of video card here for little money.
