Excerpt: In this job it sometimes feels like Christmas multiple times a week for the simple reason being that sometimes I get parcels from companies and I have no idea that they've been sent, nor what's in them.
Excerpt: Having recently taken the time to see what HIS was doing with the HD 5750, today we'll be seeing what exactly is going on with the more powerful HD 5770. We've managed to have a look at a few HD 5770s since the launch of the model and they've all done an excellent job of impressing us.
