1 out of 5 eggsNo Good For Me

Pros: When it worked, it was everything I was looking for - a quiet, full featured, relatively powerful HTPC video card.

Cons: It started acting up within a month of being installed (causing system crashes and instability). I RMA'd it after about 6 months. The replacement card worked for about a month, then weird (different then before, but no less disruptive) video issues began.

Other Thoughts: I went out of my way to cool the replacement card, thinking the environment (heat) may have been an issue, but results seem to be the same. I am just about done with this card...and done with PowerColor.

Manufacturer Response:

I apologize for the issues you are having with your replacement. If you would like, you can contact me directly at so that I may further assist you directly.

Thank you,

1 out of 5 eggsHorrid

Pros: Quiet

Cons: Price, durability.

Other Thoughts: This card died on me twice now, making it a $220 card so far. The second card I received the heat sink was not square with the rest of the card and seemed flimsier then the last, it was only a matter of time before it died. If I could give it 0 eggs I would!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Excellent card that doesn't require auxillary power. I actually own three of these cards purchased at different time. First one went into my old Q6600 daily workstation. No gaming. Second one went into my HTPC for accelerated video and HDMI sound. Third one is in my X58 980X workstation I built about 6 months ago. All are performing flawlessly. I'm waiting for PowerColor's new 6850 passive model that's been talked about for the past 6 months. Probably will put that in my 980X workstation I edit video on.

Cons: You have to pay for what you are getting. If you are purchasing a price when you are looking for a video card, then skip this one. You aren't the target audience.

Other Thoughts: I applaud PowerColor for creating a cards like these and the upcoming 6850. This 5750 is a worthy replacement to my old Sapphire Ultimate 3850 passive, which was itself a leader supporting Power Play when many other cards did not (for example).

4 out of 5 eggsUpdate - Does live up to expectations

Pros: update to previous review:
supports 3 monitors: two 1080 x 1920 and one 1200 x1980. No extra power connector needed. It is mostly passively cooled (if there is airflow in case across card from chassis fans). Works well in 2D mode. The amount of screen space I have to work with is amazing. I sit with my eyes about 20" from the monitors, thus making these 3 24" monitors completely fill up my field of view. This lets me see most of my photography workflow simultaneously and also see the full resolution of the monitors. Great!

Cons: update to previous review:
I had to install Ubuntu 11.04 Beta1 to get the card + 3 monitors working. Also, I could NOT use any of the ATI proprietary drivers.

Other Thoughts: update to previous review:

see my first review of this card for all my system specs.

I have not benchmarked this card or done any strenuous 3D testing. I am currently bogged down in getting software installed on 11.04 beta1, which is a bit of a chore given the number of broken dependencies moving to the beta release.

1 out of 5 eggsdoesn't live up to expectations

Pros: no extra power connector needed, mostly passively cooled (if have airflow in case across card from chassis fans)

Cons: cannot get 3 monitors working in desired mode in Ubuntu 10.10 64bit desktop. I tried the default drivers available in Ubuntu 10.10, as well as ATI's catalyst 11.2 and 11.3 drivers. With the Ubuntu drivers, I could get all 3 monitors working, however, they would not rotated correctly. With the Catalyst drivers, I have yet to get more than 2 monitors working. Very disappointing. I could have gotten 2 monitors up and running with the integrated graphics of my Core i7. The whole point of adding a graphics card to my system is to use a combination of 3 portrait/landscape mode monitors. I do lots of photography work as well as documents. I have to have portrait monitors available in my workflow. However, at least one needs to be landscape. I do not have space in this system for another graphics card.

Other Thoughts: My system is designed to be ultra quite. I used a noctua NH-D14 cpu cooler, replacing the fans (and all chassis fans) with the ultra-quite Nexus D12SL-12 120mm fans and using a NZXT Sentry-2 fan controller to throttle them back. I also bought a Seasonic fanless power supply.

I used 5 temp sensors inside at critical spots, none go above 45 deg in normal use.

My main objective of this card was to have the following setup: 1920x1080 left monitor (portrait mode), 1080x1920 center monitor (landscape mode), 1920x1200 right monitor (portrait mode). The left monitor has a displayport (DP) + DVI + VGA connection. Center has HDMI + VGA (also tried HDMI to DVI adapter). Right has DVI + VGA. I tried every combination of DVI/HDMI/DP including DVI to HDMI adapter.

Other system info:
Asus micro-ATX P8P67-M Pro 1155 motherboard, rev3
Core i7-2600k (not overclocked... yet)
4 x 4GB Gskill RAM
OCZ Vertex 2 128GB SSD
WD 2TB WD20EARS HDD (ultra quite version)
TJ08 micro ATX case

5 out of 5 eggsPure Silence!

Pros: Obviously anyone buying this card is after silence, and this card does just that! Runs most of my games at a pretty good rate 30-60 FPS on some games with AAx4 & AFx16. Runs Mass Effect 2 very well surprisingly! Pretty easy to overclock as well, I'm using settings that a previous user submitted here earlier at GPU 750 MEM 1300 and it runs stable with no artifacts.

Cons: BIG heatsink! No power connectors but its not prob I guess, would have been nice to have the option open though. No included CrossFire X adapter. Costlier than it's other reference models but you pay for silence with this.

Other Thoughts: So far I'm using it as a HTPC card for it's silence, but obviously for the hardcore gamer this just won't do it! Overall a very nice piece of hardware, runs decent games and HD videos quite well.

1 out of 5 eggsBuy a fanless Gigabyte 5770 Instead

Pros: Why does the more powerful fanless Gigabyte 5770 cost $140 and why does the less powerful fanless Powercolor 5750 cost $169?

Cons: Why does Powercolor charge $169 for a less powerful video card?

Other Thoughts: I was going to buy one of these until I noticed the fanless Gigabyte 5770 R577SL-1GD going for $140. The fanless Gigabyte has 800 stream processors and higher clock speeds while the powercolor has only 720 stream processors and lower clock speeds. The Gigabyte one is more of a beast.

Manufacturer Response:

Our card uses a lot less power than that card, which ultimately is going to amount to a higher manufacturing cost, which is what prices are usually determined by (along with a lot of other factors). This card isn't designed to be a speed demon of a card. This is ideal for situations where low power, and low noise are crucial (such as HTPC setups). If you want something powerful then go with a higher series graphics cards. Other companies develop faster graphics cards that are silent also, but the amount of heat generated in your case is going to be very high. Ultimately it would be better to get a version with a fan that will exhaust the hot air OUT of your case. Either way, kudos to them on their product, but this card isn't intended to compete with a 5770. Thanks.

3 out of 5 eggsdecent card, QC lacking

Pros: Doesn't suck a lot of power. Overclocks well, and is completely silent.

Cons: Card arrived DOA. Well, died after 10 seconds. Had to go through their RMA process (installed after the return window at newegg), which went pretty well. Turn around time was less than two weeks, and this was right before Xmas.

Manufacturer Response:

So for a full 10 seconds the card worked? Did it die before it had a chance to boot into Windows? It's unfortunate that you had a DOA, but I would love to try and help you get this resolved. Feel free to contact me and we can discuss the problem you had with your card. My e-mail is, thanks.

4 out of 5 eggsWork great but ...

Pros: I like this card. No fan and no moving part and very quiet. No 6 pin power !!!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have Vmware running on my client and when I play a 1080p movie, my host would crash and it say ATI CCC has recovered.

I dont know if it has to do with that this card does not have 6 pin power and there is not enough juice??? Anyone knows?
