So what do you exactly get for US$170 when you purchase HIS's HD5770 mainstream videocard.
HIS supplies the usual driver CD, a basic installation guide along with a full version of Colin McRae Dirt 2 which fully supports DirectX 11. As I have said previously, any videocard that comes complete with a decent game is a huge plus in my books.
The hardware kit covered all the bases with a VGA to DVI adapter, a six pin power cable along with a crossfire bridge. Nothing much more is needed.
And last out of the box is the videocard itself. With HIS's decorative sticker missing, this is a early version of the HD 5770 which has not been branded yet other than the label on the fan. Overall, the card is a exact stamp of the reference design I have previously reviewed from Sapphire and XFX.
