Summary: I won't go into a 4 page review as I will just be restating what others have said. But, this is a great card for the price. It won't do high-end video editing, or even run games at ultra settings, obviously. But it is good enough to run most games at med-high setting with comfortable results. I will add some benchmarks later when I think about it.
Summary: Client wanted the best bang for the least buck and this was the card i chose. Its about the same price as the older 5670. It doesn't have quite the memory bandwidth of that card which makes it slightly slower. What it does have going for it is lower power consumption. Client is happy with the price; his son is happy with the card...its a win win situation.
Summary: Good card. First one I got had screen artifacts and yellow lines down my display. Got a replacement and it has worked great. Pros: Great price, good for a budget Cons: Not very easy to install on a Hackintosh. Not Sapphire's fault, of course, but should be taken in to account. Had I known I would have gone with something a little more well supported in OSX.
Summary: Made a difference.. Was using onboard HD3200 video on gigabyte motherboard with an amd quad core and 8 gb memory. I run a dual boot 64 bit system, win7 and vista. In win7 my score went from 4.1 to 6.8 for graphics, and 5.4 to 6.8 for gaming graphics. Not too bad 65% better in graphics but only 25% better in gaming graphics. In Vista my score went from 4.2 to 5.9 for graphics, and 4.0 to 5.7 for gaming graphics.
Summary: I'm mostly happy with my purchase of this product. I needed something for a small, affordable, but powerful HTPC, that I might occasionally play a game or two of starcraft 2 on. I dual boot Fedora and Windows 7 on the box, and both are doing ok with it. At first I was seeing some tearing while watching HD videos in Fedora, but there is a no-tearing setting (forget what its called) in the Catalyst configuration utility.
Low profile, quiet, and good for the price. (Note the sound settings, though - see below)

Summary: Bought this as an upgrade for a fairly elderly card that was scoring around 4 on the windows performance index, and having read the positive reviews on this site. The item arrived securely packaged, with the outputs split between two low profile retainers. It was the job of a couple of minutes to replace the two low profile ports (as shown side by side in the illustration) to a single slot retainer (supplied) suitable for mounting into a full size computer.
Summary: Sicher ist das keine HighEnd Karte - hab ich auch nicht erwartet. Für die einfachen Spiele und Anwendungen aber völlig ausreichend. Braucht wenig Strom, und macht keinen Lärm. Was will man mehr?
