Graphics cards manufacturer TUL Corporation today announced the launch of the world’s first graphics card to feature Eyefinity 5 in the form of its PowerColor branded HD 5770 GPU. The new card supports the multi-display ATI Eyefinity technology from AMD for extended monitor support.

TUL Corporation has created the HD 5770 Eyefinity 5 as a hybrid from the original HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 and the HD 5770. The new card boasts of five onboard mini display ports that allow up to five separate monitors to be operated through a single card. This should make the card a delight for gamers who like to expand their gaming arena as they would now be able to play around with different configurations and get more done.

In terms of processing power, the PowerColor HD 5770 Eyefinity 5 has 800 stream processors, carries a core clocked at 850MHz, and has 1GB of DDR5 memory clocked at 4800MHz. The card is fully compatible with Microsoft DirectX 11, making it ideal for extraordinary gaming experiences. The manufacturer has fitted it with the highly acclaimed Arctic Cooling cooler, which means the GPU should remain nicely chilled out and silent even in extreme running conditions.

“As the first graphics solution supports up to 5 displays, the PowerColor HD5770 Eyefinity 5 delivers an immersive HD gaming performance with wider field of view and increases productivity at the same time,” Ted Chen, CEO of TUL Corporation said. While the manufacturer has not said much about pricing, the PowerColor HD 5770 Eyefinity 5 should become available with retailers in couple of weeks.

for a budget gaming rig invest 200$ in the graphics card to begin with then build your setup from that because you want the main investment to be the graphics card. Personally i went with amd because the athlon x4 620 is a real bargin at 130$ cad and overclocks very nicely.

So if I were to build from the graphics card up....should I be looking to Radeon or Geforce? For similar prices I could go with the 5770, or I could go with something like the Geforce GTX 260. I would love to get something high end but my funds do not allow for it.

i got a 9800gtx+ which is like a gtx 250 and its very nice for game at 1600x900 the 5770 is direct x 11 so its a bit more future proof but personally an nvidia fan boy but either way should be nice. Also consider getting a board that supports sli or crossfire depending on the graphics card you choose. Building a rig is all about research and you cant really research too much.

So I have been researching and trying to figure out exactly what route I should take with my upcoming PC build. So far I have it narrowed down to this, I am just waiting for my funds to go through and then I will order it and put it all together. I wanted to pass it along to you guys to see what you thought:

CPU: Intel Core i5 750 $209.97
Mobo: ASUS P7P55D-E Pro LGA1156 P55 $211.19
Ram: G.SKILL Ripjaws PC3-12800 4GB 2X2GB DDR3-1600 CL7-7-7-24 $149.99
HD: WD Caviar Black 1TB SATA2 7200RPM 4.2MS 32MB $99.99
PSU: OCZ ModXStream Pro 700W 80PLUS - $79.99
GPU: XFX Radeon HD 5770 XXX $237.99
Case: Cooler Master Haf 932 Full Tower Black $143.98

Total Price: $1304.90

Price is a little steep but I wanted to try and keep it down without sacrificing performance as much as possible. If you see anything that I could possibly change before I go through with it let me know! thank you!

Thanks for the input ninja, I found a xfx 5770 for 195 bucks new so I think I might just get it and overclock it myself rather than paying the extra 40 bucks for the factory to do it. I also dropped my HD to a seagate 500gb for 60 bucks so the total price comes out to $1193 which is a little bit lighter on my wallet as well

Sad fact of the matter is with tech these days, some1 with the same budget could allocate 80% or so of it to get a 5970 or even a 480, spend peanuts on the mobo/cpu/memory/drives - and u'd cry when they bring the pc over and play the same game next to u.

Ofc, ur cpu etc benchies will look more impressive.

Well the way I see it, I game on a 22" 1680x1050 monitor so as long as my card can pump out the graphics on high and not chug and sputter i'm happy for the time being. Once I pay the bill on this computer...which will probably take me awhile as I am a full time student with a part time job, I'll be able to save up and buy a different card if I really want to.

I'm excited, I haven't had my own desktop computer for like over 2 years now so this will be a nice change for sure.
