Is that the right code you were looking for?
That's a solid Delta unit.

A 5750 can be had for ~100, no need to stretch the budget.
It only consumes ~75 IIRC, but it needs 1x 6pin power connector, but you should be able to run it with an adapter so you don't have to upgrade your PSU.

i bought the 5670 and didn't even unpackage it and bought the 5750 instead
it was just a tad more BUT i did receive a superior card

the 5670 had dvi, hdmi, vga and the 5750 had 2xdvi, hdmi, and display port
as well the 5750 had 1GB or RAM whereas the 5670 had 512MB

but then you could spend a touch more and go with a 5770 ...
(it never ends)

overall I am pleased with the 5750 and do get the one with the arctic cooling fans ... these are dead silent (under load they are barely audible)

oh, and the reason for the switch, there was an unboxing video on youtube in which Linus unboxed a 5750 and in his comments, he called the 5670 a dog .... (it was enough to make me reconsider but with the extra memory and port options [and faster card] I am pleased)

I picked up a 5570 as a low power option for my HTPC and I have to say it's one hell of a performer for how little energy it uses, and surprisingly I am able to play Oblivion, DIrt 2, and L4D at 1920x1080 at very healthy frame rates.
