    Looks like a terrible cooler... I can't believe it works very well, most small cases without the room for a dual slot also tend to have pants cooling.

    At least they figured out that some people might be interested in using more than their pcie 16x slots.

    At last, a successor to the 8800GT.

    Well done Powercolor...

    This is what we need.. a little variety.. like getting low profile but double width 5670s

    Maybe a single slot 5750 would be cooler?

    Ha! My thoughts exactly.

    Would have gone for one of these over the dual slot version had it been available at that time.

    Well the 8800GT was the last, decent, single slot cooled card.
    That card didn't get that hot with a single slot cooler either.

    Is it really that surprising that the 5770 is single slot when you can purchase a passive 5750?

    Still, good news for the SFF users.

    How good is one of the 5770's compared to the 4850's ?
