    Lacking the rear-exhausting cooler, it'll be a little bit shorter. Any idea if the PCB has been revised, and so might be shorter too? Truth be told, it won't matter that much, but it'll be interesting to know.

    Article says that the cards are unchanged, only the cooler.

    Didnt they do this with the 4770, cheaper components to get the build costs down?, Lets hope they have not skimped on qualitty.

    I'm glad I got mine while they are still doing the original cooler. This wouldn't work too well in my SG03 otherwise.

    I'm not a fan of this card.

    <listens to collective gasps of disbelief from around the planet>

    If I wanted to buy an ATi card in this price range I'd grab one of the 4890s. They cost less, perform a good deal higher, and DX11 will take a while to become a factor anyway. When it does, the 4890 will have DX10.1 almost as fast, and still be beating up the 5770 on the rest of the DX10 games.

    They were cheaper a week or two ago. Now on newegg.com, one of the US leading etailers, the 4890 is only $15 more. $15 is not a lot to pay extra for a card that performs as far above the 5770 as the 4890 does- I wouldn't even think twice about this choice.

    As far as the power goes, it blows my wheels every time I see someone concerned about the cost of energy from a video card. We're talking about pocket change, gum money with the difference in power used by video cards. Nothing to be concerned about.

    It depends on what type of build you are looking at. If it is a standard full sized build then power consumption is not a big deal for an enthusiast who is going to be spending £1000+ on their entire computer anyway.

    OTH,if you own a prebuilt PC with a weaker power supply then a card which only requires one PCI-E power connector or is even bus powered and offers decent performance is useful. It also means that manufacturers can use lower cost PSUs in their cheaper gaming PCs too.

    Also, I own a SFF PC so the midrange cards which have lower power consumption and offers decent performance are of interest to me.

    It depends on what type of computer you own and what part of the market you are aiming for.

    I suppose the 5770 has uses, but it wouldn't for me. I have 1200W PSUs in both my rigs, haven't done less than 1000W for some years now.

    Some typos there?

    Would sound *much* more accurate.

    Don't know how you search, but:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-438-_-Product

    HD4890 $179.99 shipped, AMIR.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-864-_-Product

    HD5770 $164.99 shipped.

    That is $15 difference in cost to the buyer, as I noted. I'll note at this point the 4890 I linked to has XFX's double lifetime warranty, which means they replace it for life for both you, and the person you sell it to, which raises re-sale value. (and means you'll never have to replace the card at your cost if you choose to keep it) The $164.99 5770s all have a skimpy "limited 2 year" warranty, which is non transferable. I'd pay $15 more for the warranty, but even if you don't care about that, look at the 4890 smack around the 5770:

    http://www.techreport.com/articles.x/17747/6

    The 4890 destroys the 5770 in the games they're both benched in, and even the 4870 is beating the 5770 in the games the 4890 is not included in.

    So I guess if a person in the States wants to buy a much slower, less powerful gaming card with a far worse warranty to save $15, the 5770 might be the way to go. Personally I usually try to get the best deal for my money.

    BTW- around here, you can't buy a good dinner for $15.. You can't fill up you gas tank for $15.. You can't buy a decent bottle of liquor for $15.. $15 is basically the same price- it's not a significant amount of money anyone would care about saving.

    Rollo, how fast does that 4890 perform in DX11 games?

    Also I would have thought as an nVidian you'd know that XFX branding tends to lower resale value..

    Still a lot better than the 5770:

    http://www.anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=3658&p=7

    I only purchase XFX products when possible for the re-sale value, people on EBay really like the peace of mnd knowing they'll get a lifetime warranty on a used part. Off the top of my head, my last XFX purchases were a GTX260C216, a 9800GX2, a 7950GX2. Besides getting cards free, I also buy a fair amount of them.

    The 5770 is just hamstrung by their unfortunate choice of memory bus.
