The lack of DX11 games is not that much of a con... The lack of cards would be worse IMO...

Another great review!

The 5750 will be a market winner. Great features and performance for it's price.

I would have liked a comparison with one of your 295's, but an above par review all the same. Also, like PeeWee, I wouldn't place lack of DX11 games as a con, as that's more of a fault of the developer, per se.

It would, but you can't really blame ATI for the lack of DX11 games. If anything, it's a pro that they got these cards out so early.

It's the decisions you make when you have no time to make them that define who you are.

i think what he meant by this is
that if you have a card and you happy with and you just want to get a new one for future proof ( dx 11 ) this is a good one but no dx 11 games , so do not get it if you are happy with your current card and wait till dx 11 games come out ...
that is what i understood by reading : ( no dx11 titles )
i know people do not but cards for dx support but they do buy it for future proof as i said ..;)
