It’s HD 7770 and HD 7750 day here on the Internet, and MAINGEAR turned out to celebrate by offering the AMD Radeon HD 7700 series graphics cards in its systems.

The HD 7770 occupies two slots and features 1GB DDR5 memory and a 1GHz core clock with DVI, HMDI, and two mini-DisplayPorts, while the single-slot HD 7750 has the same memory and ports but with a core clock of 800Mhz and one fewer DisplayPort.

For now, the cards are available in the SHIFT and F131 systems, although MAINGEAR says it’s coming next year for the VYBE and EPIC products.


Kenilworth, New Jersey – February 15, 2012 (12:01am EST) - MAINGEAR, an award-winning PC system builder of custom desktops, notebooks, and workstations, now offers PC enthusiasts the AMD Radeon™ HD 7750 and HD 7770 graphics solutions in their award-winning desktop systems.

MAINGEAR will offer the option of choosing AMD Radeon HD 7700 series cards, which is AMD’s latest mainstream variant of their 7000 series GPUs, on their desktops. The new AMD Radeon ™ HD 7700 series graphics cards offer the world’s most advance graphics with the industry’s very first 28nm GPU design at an affordable price point. Similar to the AMD Radeon HD 7900 series, the AMD Radeon HD 7770 also offers 1GB GDDR5 video memory, 1 DVI, 2 mini-display ports, and 1 HDMI output, as well as superior performance with dual card configurations thanks to AMD CrossFire™ technology. The AMD Radeon HD 7750 sports a single slot design, sips a mere 55W, and supports 1 DVI, 1 HDMI, and 1 DisplayPort output. Both the AMD Radeon HD 7900 and 7700 series graphics supports DirectX® 11 and with AMD Eyefinity, and gamers and creative professionals can enjoy support for up to 6 displays for immersive entertainment and enhanced productivity.

These powerful, ”Never Settle” graphics solutions will be available on the SHIFT and F131 MAINGEAR desktops initially and will be offered on the VYBE in the near future, along with their EPIC Research Labs innovative line of enthusiast-grade product offerings like the EPIC CPU Liquid cooling solution. All MAINGEAR products are supported with lifetime labor and phone support in the US, along with one to three year hardware warranty options.

This is an interesting move indeed, I understand adding this option for the F131 but I have to agree with @cowboyspace, anyone who can afford a shift will spring for something with a little more horsepower than a 7770/7750.

Now you're just mashing it!

Yeah it's nice that they offer these card, but like you said why would you put one in a Shift? That would be like putting generic all season tires on a Corvette.

I think I found out the reason for offering the 7770 in a Shift. When run in crossfire the 7770 can equal the performance of an 7970, and you would still save about $200.
