We've already looked at the ATI Radeon HD 5770 video card earlier today and to say that we were pleasantly surprised by the model would be an understatement. The ability for a mid-range video card to offer us playable frame rates at resolutions up to 1920 x 1200 with our game settings at High to Very High is nothing short of fantastic.
While the model is great at 1920 x 1200, it's even better at 1680 x 1050 thanks to the fewer amounts of pixels that have to be pushed around the screen. With that said though, if you're really on a budget, it could almost be considered overkill.
While the HD 5770 might cover you a bit more for future releases or the option to move to a larger monitor, you might find yourself being happy with the prospect of saving some money and dropping down some graphics quality detail levels in future games as they become more intensive.
Since the HD 5770 sits only just above that 30 FPS mark when it's achieved, we don't expect the HD 5750 to be able to really offer us a playable setup at that resolution with our presets at Very High. We will test at those settings though for consistency, but the main questions we want to answer are - Are we above 30 FPS at 1680 x 1050 with our Very High Presets and how far are we from 30 FPS at 1920 x 1200 or with a detail drop could we achieve 30 FPS?
With that said, let's have a quick look at the package before we dive deeper into the video card itself, the specification and then of course the performance before we wrap everything up in our final thoughts.
