    Anybody using any type of 7750? How do you like it?

    And more specifically is anyone using this Sapphire 7750 low profile?

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202002

    I like that it is low enough power to draw only from the PCI-Express slot and that it's low profile so I can get one of the smaller mini-ITX cases eventually. Currently running a 3850 still on a Z77e-ITX with an i5 3570k in a mid tower case that looks a bit empty. Looking to upgrade performance a bit and downgrade in size/power consumption.

    The only benchmarks I can find on 7750's are from February. Anyone know of someplace that has done benchmarks more recently using newer drivers/games or perhaps on Windows 8.

    I'm really interested in getting a low profile card and this one with HDMI, DVI, and DisplayPort looks very promising. Clearly I'm not going to get top end performance, but I want to be able to verify more clearly that my performance is going to be "Good Enough" for 1920x1200 and moderate to high quality settings without a lot of AA/AF going on.

    I have a 7750 full profile. 1080p. It's very fluid on medium settings, high is ok, ultra-high is a little choppy. ( depending on the game ) There's a recent review on techpowerup of a HIS 7750.

    I am loving this card, although I bought it specifically for Diablo III. I bought the low profile Sapphire version when it came out. 1920x1200 with everything on high, shadows off, AA on, and framerate never dips below 30 FPS.

    AMD 910E on a mini-ITX case. With DVI, displayport, and HDMI connections, I can bring my computer anywhere I travel like a laptop and have a decent gaming experience.

    Is there anything faster than the 7750?

    7750 is currently the fastest low profile card available that I know of. The choice that people face right now is really between getting a 7750 and deciding not to go low profile at all.

    Personally, it sounds like the 7750 will be fast enough.

    I think there is a low profile 7850 floating around out there somewhere. But I think it is a much longer card and maybe is not available in the US.

    Does anyone have any exact measurements on the Sapphire 7750. The specs say 6.69", which is 170mm, but I'm not sure what that is a measurement of. I'd like to know if that's the PCB length or if any of the back plate is included in that. I'm thinking of this card, but I have pretty tight space constraints to work with.

    AFOX has a low profile 7850: http://www.afox-corp.com/en/products_details.asp?proid=209 It comes in a full-height, single-slot variant as well. Same goes for the 6850.

    You can buy it from AFOX directly by emailing them at sales@afox-corp.com. They have an actual store website with prices listed as well but I can't seem to find it.

    EDIT: Never mind, I found it: http://afoxbuy1.jimdo.com/products/low-profile-graphics-card/amd-radeon-hd7850/

    I know the URL differs, but I did a WHOIS on the domain a few weeks back and the info matched up with the official AFOX site. Also, yes, it really is that expensive! Probably not worth it unless you're rolling in cash or really need the card.
