Summary: I bought this card to replace an ATI Radeon HD 4850 in a 3 year old PC. My old card was having issues and needed to be replaced. I only have PCI Express 2.0 so I didn't want to spend too much money on a replacement card. I wish I could find an old 4850 with 1 gb of ram. I didn't know what a gem I had until I installed this piece of junk. Games I used to run in 1920x1080 perfectly fine now ran with framerates below 8 fps. I can't stand it.
Summary: I'm not a technical wizard but, I can honestly say that I've had this installed in my computer for 2 weeks now and my games have looked amazing. They used to be blotchy, freeze, stop, etc. The graphics are amazing! Great buy!
Card was used, dirty with fingerprints all over, and malfunctioning

Summary: I won't go into the details, but looks like it was a returned item that came back to me. I purchased it on Walmart.com but I'm reviewing it here. If I have more problems, I'll update this and go into the details at the expense of AMD's reputation. By that I mean, I have unboxing video that shows just how the graphics card arrived.
Summary: Ordered this as an upgrade to my: AAC-X4 Desktop Computer - 3.6GHz Quad Core Processor (Bulldozer) 8GB DDR3 RAM 1,000GB (1TB) HDD Sold by AA Computers Did my research and found thru reading the reviews that this is the best upgrade of a video card that my computer can handle, so I gave it a shot, I tend to buy things based more on reviews then price or anything else.
Summary: The 6570 chip set itself is not a bad product. I have another computer with a 6570 (a Sapphire) and it scores well and is relatively snappy with desktop graphics and non intense 3d games. This card, however, is another thing. I returned it after giving it more than what I considered its dues. First off, it fit very poorly. The Dell Dimension E-510 it was going into had a tool free install (i.e.
Summary: Product works fine with with two monitors: one using VGA and the other DVI. I liked it a lot until I wanted to add a third monitor and discovered that it doesn't accept any adapters. So if you want to use 3 monitors, they each must have a different interface. Thus I am unable to drive a VGA/DVI monitor from the HDMI port using an HDMI to DVI adapter. Tech support suggested I get a USB display adapter for the 3rd monitor or buy another card. Nice!!! Downgrading to 1 star.
Summary: Was easy to install and update drivers for it. Runs pretty quite and stays cool, although I'm not a gamer. Built my first PC (had HP's before) and chose this one for multimedia use. Works great for video playing. Priced right for my needs.
Summary: although I do run two monitors off of this card. And I can't, find anything, that separates it from the 'big boys'. Except for a separate power connection, and then absolutely huge price tag. I was just looking for decent graphics, something that could supply a decent frame rate for games such as 'SimCity', and run two monitors. I didn't want to break the bank, but I would if I had to. I thought I'd try this card, give it a good run, and send it back if it failed.
