The overall performance of the ASUS EAH5750 was quite impressive for such a small packaged card. It was able to compete with the HD5770 quite closely throughout the entire testing, even being able to beat it out once it was overclocked, as well as giving the GTX260 some competition while it was overclocked. The clock speeds that I was able to reach on the GPU and the memory of the card were also quite impressive - 860MHz and 1230MHz were just shy of what I was able to achieve with the HD5770. The software that ASUS decided to bundle with the card was also quite impressive - I really liked the GamerOSD, as you are able to easily record a video of the game you are playing and share it with friends. The SmarDoctor software was also nice as it gives you the ability to adjust the fan speed based on the temperature of the GPU, as well as being able to change the clock speed of the card based on the CPU usage or if you were playing a game, which could help reduce your power consumption. The temperatures of the card were also quite impressive, sitting at a cool 40°C while it was idle and I did not see it break 70°C during the benchmarking, which is going to help with the overall temperatures inside your case. The amount of ways you can connect a monitor to the card is going to add value to the card, as not everyone has a monitor with a DVI connector on it. Even though there are dongles to allow analog monitors to connect to the DVI port, you don't have to hunt down your dongle just to hook up a monitor. Even though there are not many DX11 games on the market yet, more are just around the corner and with the EAH5750, you will be ready for the launch of those titles. I would suggest this card to anyone who is building a new setup on a budget that is going to need a powerful graphics card, but does not want to pay the high premium for one of the power horses, such as the HD5970.
