Overall, the XFX R7750 performed as expected. It’s hard for the review to give it much credit in the results section when compared to the compared cards; those were some tough competitors. For a 1 GB card with such a low power draw and awesome temperature profile, this card is a winner – at least, depending on what you want to do with it. Personally, I wouldn’t call it your next hardcore gaming card, but that wasn’t what it was designed for. It’s a great mid-range video card that can handle all the newer games – just maybe not with Eyefinity and maxed out settings. But for getting to play the games and at such an affordable price, this card can’t be beat. The cost is low enough, whether you are getting into building your own rig for the first time, or if you’ve been doing it a long time – it is a card that is right for the price.
The XFX R7750 didn’t blow me out of the water with results, but I didn’t expect it to. It did overclock very easily by just maxing out the sliders, though there wasn’t a huge gain from this, given that it comes clocked somewhat high right out of the box. Again, the temperatures and energy consumption are the high selling points for this card. If you often leave your rig running all day and night, I’m sure your power bill shows this extra amount every month. This is a perfect card for any home theater or mid-range gaming rig. Overall, it won’t make Skyrim run like real life, but will run the game quite nicely. It is a price, power, and temperature winner.
