PowerColor AX7750 1GBD5-DH Radeon HD 7750 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I haven't pushed this card, it was a replacement for a dead nVidia-based card that was causing BSODs but, man, the VGA is _so_ much better than that nVidia put out - nearly as good as the HDMI on my dual-monitor setup. The card it replaced was fanless but I don't notice the fan noise on this card (I do have a fairly soundproof case).

Cons: Doesn't wake the monitor connected to the HDMI port. Googling around I see that this issue has been fixed in the past with a driver update but the latests drivers from PowerColor or AMD (as of late Dec 2012) don't fix the issue. My now-dead card had no problem waking the monitor from sleep. I hate having to power-cycle the monitor to wake it.

Also, does not recognize the monitor attached to the VGA port. My now-dead card had no problem recognizing that monitor - forcing it to the correct resolution means it displays okay (better than the old card) but why should it be so hard when it obviously doesn't have to.

Other Thoughts: I may be returning this thing. I cannot abide by the failure to wake.

GIGABYTE Silent Series GV-R575SL-1GI Radeon HD 5750 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Don't know, cannot use.

Cons: Cannot get any other refresh rate but an unusable 60Hz with 10yr old Dell P1110 CRTs.

Other Thoughts: I have some hand-me-down Dell P1110 CRTs that have no trouble doing 85Hz at 1600x1200. I have an nVidia GT240 card that drives these monitors at that rate. This new Radeon doesn't seem to want to. I've tried the driver that comes with it, a new driver from Gigabyte, with and without installing the Catalyst Control Center. I've tried changing the refresh rate from Win7-64 and from the Catalyst control center. In both cases, the only option that comes up is 60Hz - even when I check 'display refresh rates my monitor doesn't support'. I had to go to the GT240 card. Both the nVidia control panel and the Catalyst control center (and the Win7-64 device manager) detect the monitor as a 'Generic Non-PnP Monitor'. I've tried updating the monitor driver using the Win2K driver for the Dell P1110 (they are that old), but Win7 says it has better drivers and ignores them.

Why doesn't it just let me set the refresh rate to what I want? The docs say the GV-R575SL-1GI should do 1600x1200@100Hz.
