Though again 5750ís (most) require a 6-pin and at least 400W PSU; their really two-worlds apart in real user upgrade paths. Mainstream or "all-purpose mid-towers" a mainstay business (maybe not so much anymore) for Dell, HP, Acer, Lenovo, Gateway... aren't normally equipped that much PSU, useless they optioned it up with, or that model came with a discrete graphic, at exorbitant up-charge.
Considering a 6670 pulls at "peak" ~50W, while a 5750 is nearing 20W more in the same condition, the chance of running a 5750 on most OEM PSUís normally sporting an honest "300-350W" (in most instances) is prohibitive.
Sure the cost of such a card does for most of us appears prohibitive, although for those that just want plug-n-play capability, and not the extra cost on a PSU this is what itís intended market.
In marketing terms it boils down too, Nvidiaís' got zip that competes power/performance, and itís really about AMD is itsí own rival.
