Summary: Works great - makes everything on the screen seem to go faster. Helps with my video processing. Wasn't paying attention - most of the 5670's had a display port - which I needed for a third monitor. This one didn't :( Liked the price - so I decided to buy a bigger 2nd monitor and live with two.
amazon has some cheap prices on almost everything...

Summary: I bought this as a gift for a friend of mine who's power went out and ruined his video card. he was thrilled because it was an upgrade from a 512mb and he was impressed how it synced to his gigabyte motherboard
Summary: the product is what it is, it's a lower end but still usable gaming graphics card. it can do more than my old 8600gt, but the one thing i cannot stand is ati's software "catalyst" is not as user friendly as nvidia's interface. plus it cant output at 1280x768, is can only do a 720 or 760, which means the picture is not optimal on one of my two monitors so that kind of stinks, my old card could i never notice it on the spec sheet, but that's my fault.
Summary: I had reserved myself to laptop gaming for a few years now. I grew tired of that and built myself a new gaming rig. I looked for the best prices for the best performance, and this is what I came to for a video card. Today, in May 2011, there isn't a single game on my Steam list that isn't playable, and most look very good at decent FPS. The graphics card is stable, able to be overclocked, and runs cool (Mass Effect 2: 40C max).
Summary: so i looked all over for a low power pcie card with high specs, this was rated as the best value for the $ on Passmark's videobenchmark.net (that's the analysis part)the gamble was that it calls for 400 watt power supply and i only have a 300 watt psu in my hp with amd phenom ii deneb and 8 gb ram. the card works awesome!!! i have 1 optical drive and one hard drive, a tv tuner and wifi card.
