The Sapphire HD 5750 is a reference design on a blue PCB as is the wont with Sapphire cards. The card front is dominated by a large heatsink/fan assembly. The fan is a 9-fin fan and the heatsink is reminiscent of a Intel CPU cooler heatsink. The card is about a inch and a half longer than the PCI Express slot.

Modern high-performance cards require additional power beyond the 75W a PCI Express slot can provide. The HD5750 has a 6-pin power connector at the rear of the card to provide the additional power it requires. The top of the card has two Crossfire bridges. CrossfireX is ATI's multi-GPU solution requiring two or more video cards and a compatible motherboard.

ATI is really pushing their Eyefinity multi-display technology across their entire announced lineup. The Sapphire card like the other cards in the HD5xxx series has two Dual-Link DVI connectors, a HDMI connector and a DisplayPort connector. You can drive up to three monitors with the connections with a DisplayPort monitor required for monitor #3.
