    What happened to the passive Powercolor one? I still don't see that available in the UK!

    I'm sure this is a nice card, and the cooler likely improves on the reference one, but notice to manufacturers: 5750s with passive coolers are JUST as desirable, and I wanted to buy one MONTHS ago!

    Still doesn't look like it directly vents all that hot used air out the back of the case....

    "the same value for money performance as the standard model, whilst working at lower operating temperatures and significantly more quietly."
    It will cost the same as the standard cards then ?

    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    This is my quandry. Focus the air out the back of the case, not something that just blows it around.

    Lower clocked, so it will have to be cheaper?
