Decent cooler
Overclocks well
Not too power hungry
First one was DOA
No accessories included
No DisplayPort = no triple display capability
Purchased this for $90 with a $20 mail-in rebate on top. First one was DOA, but the replacement was fine. It's not as fast as a GTX 460, but it was substantially cheaper and overclocks well. I pushed it from 850 Mhz to 975 Mhz with no voltage adjustment (voltage can't be changed by TriXX or Afterburner).

The cooler on this is also fairly decent. Overclocked and mining for Bitcoins (215-220 Mh/s), the core runs at 82C with the fan at 40% speed. At this level it's audible but not unpleasant sounding inside an Antec Solo case. I briefly used it as a second card in another system, but it did not fare so well. The extra heat caused the fan to spin up to ear-splitting levels.

You need one 6-pin PCI-E connector (no adapter or any other accessories are included) but runs fine on most power supplies. I use a Seasonic 350W unit.

- good bang for the buck
- DirectX 11 compatible
- no Display Port output
Not being much of a gamer, I thought this was a good pick up for me. It's proven itself to be quite the decent middle-of-the-road card. It handles ACAD like a pro and although I've only played Dead Space thus far, it looks fantastic. It also throws out Blu-ray movies quite nicely. Highly recommended for those who want decent performance, but aren't looking for Eyefinity capability as this card does not have Display Port interface.

Excellent performance for the price.
Mail-in rebate.
I got this card to upgrade my existing single HD 5770 video card to a dual crossfire setup. It provides excellent performance for a budget gaming system.

This card has literally blown me away. Price is much lower than most other 5770s. The performance is really great. I am able to play Crysis 2 at Extreme settings with an avg of 50 fps, this is even before I overclocked this card. I was playing at 1280X720 res in a window and the game looked phenomenal. Those settings are just my preferences for gaming as I like to have monitoring tools in the background.
My only con would be that I did not order 2 of these to run in crossfire :P
So to summarize this card I would have to say I highly recommend this purchase. I read some of the other reviews and I don't see how it can perform so badly for others. I have MANY graphics cards and the 5770 is a great mainstream card and will hands-down blow away most other cards in crossfire. BUT with newer cards such as the 6xxx series of HD cards this is a tough choice.

-Low fan noise
-Good enough for most settings
-Fan seems low quality
I bought this for a friend and he wanted to run black ops. This is a good budget card, since I bought it on discount. It ran MW2 and black ops with no problem so far, and settings were set to high. Temperature is around 40 in idle. Though, if you can spare a bit more money, you should invest in a better card.

good performance vs price
none yet
Low power consumption, shorter than my old HD 3870 ,very good buy for the price.

Experience: 20 Days
can play all games on high
two dvi outputs
uses 2 slots for your case
powercolor didnt send me my MIR the first time I bought one but that's not NCIX's fault.

great product itself, came with crossfire cables, looks great, value is nice especially if you play on upgrading by setting up crossfire.

Experience: 90 Days
Adequate performance
Reliability, warranty,
Lots of screen flickering and other dispaly issues with the 5770 graphics card. Search youtube and google for more info.

If you want to get this card, get one that has a lifetime warranty.This one only has two years. Now, I have to figure out how to RMA the dang thing.

And the only reason I didnt give this review 1 star is I dont have my order number which is required but only my invoice number for reviews for ratings 2 and below stars.

- Good card for the price
- DX11 support
- Only 2 displays max for eyefinity
- May get similar performance for less money with an older card
The Radeon 5770 is a midrange gamer card which works as is expected on most current games. There's not way it can run anything at max settings, but anywhere from medium to high is generally within its range, and only on a monitor that is 1080p or below in resolution. That being said, for its price it's a good bargain, especially if you get it on a discount.

However, this card performs more or less the same as my 4870, which can actually be bought for cheaper than this card. The only drawback of the 4870 to this card is that it doesn't support DX11, and it doesn't support eyefinity. If you weren't aiming to be DX11 games and don't care about 2-screen eyefinity, then a 4870 might be a much better buy.

Experience: 6 Months
Good decent performance
Poor power color build. Horrible RMA experience
I bought this card about 6 months ago and had nothing but problems. when it did work, it was great. My first card lasted a little over a month before giving problems. Had it RMA and it took a month to get any news back from them. They sent me a new card and that card failed right away! At first I thought it might be my pc, so I tried it on another computer and the same thing. I am still waiting for my second RMA card. If you complain.. sometimes they don't even respond at all! I'd avoid power color in the future.
If your card works, its a good value. But if your unlikely, you'll have to deal with their customer service
