My System Specs

Default directcanada.com - Sapphire Radeon HD 5770

Has anyone purchased this card?
(Sapphire Radeon HD 5770 850MHZ 1GB 4.8GHZ GDDR5 PCI-E 2XDVI HDMI Display Port Lite Retail Video Card)
directcanada.com doesn't have a picture for it...
Is "lite" some form of oem?

I would like to get this card but am not sure what to expect...

Any help would be great!

Like this one at NCIX for $178.99? Same part #21163-10-20R
Looks like the retail package without the Dirt 2 coupon to me.

Doesn't have a full cooling shroud as pictured but still runs faster but cooler than my 8800GT and my case temperature is lower.

Pretty much a 5770 with the 5750 cooler on it.

Apparently, core temps are better since the fan is right above the chip. I would imagine the memory gets hotter though.
