Indeed. I was lucky when I returned the Sapphire 5750 and got the HIS 5670 instead*). It's double width but fits in my Shuttle XPC SP35 P2 Pro, which has exactly two slots. Its fan is quieter than the other quiet fans in the system, and blows hot air out of the little box instead of heating the inside air. Almost everything works now, except TrueHD bitstreaming in PDVD9. MPC-HC+ffdshow can bitstream both HD formats.
I filed a PDVD bug, received a reply today, requiring me to gather some info for them, which I will do tomorrow. Hopefully it will get fixed. I will try TMT3 when they add bitstreaming.
*) It's possible the Sapphire 5750 failed because it did not receive enough power through the 6-pin connector. The 5670 doesn't have an external connector and somewhat lower power requirements. 5670 : recommended 400W P/S, 5750 recommended 450W P/S
