Again, it's the same GPU as the 7770. There's nothing innovative here.
I'll post the FutureMark rankings, since we never ran official benchmarks on the Radeon 7770. Other sites have tested it in full.
Our Thoughts: Generally Inadvisable Unless on an Extreme Budget
Unless you're trying to build an ultra-budget HTPC or lightweight gaming PC (see our 'Cheap Bastard's' PC build guides), we generally are quick to encourage purchasing a $130-$150 GPU instead. The performance advantage is massive and will be the difference of 1080p on low/medium and 1080p on medium/high. Always worth it for our gaming-targeted readership. That said, it's all right in strictly low-end, money-conscious builds.
Let us know if you require any assistance in selecting a video card for your gaming PC build!
