Summary: Look- most of the modern games on the market are not that graphically challenging thanks to the fact most PC games are console ports. So what's the point of buying some $3000 card that is never full utilized? This card plays most non-demanding modern games (IE Mass Effect 3, Deus Ex:HR) beautifully, with the caveat of having strange shadow problems on occasion. If you enjoy the mechanics of a game over the graphics, then this card is perfect.
Summary: Not the fastest... but I am not willing to spend $500 on the latest card when this one will do JUST fine! Game refresh rates and vid sizes are superb. A good card. I researched this one and for this price... this is the card to buy.
Good quick & quiet card. Sapphire 'no wait' rebate option is a joke

Summary: Installed this easily (10 minutes total) into my HP HPE-510t (replacing the stock Nvidia). Win7 experience score went from 5.1 to 7.1 for both graphics numbers. The system was very quiet to start with, and I really can't even detect the fan on the video card. Make sure to remove the previous video driver. I had forgotten this at first, and when the system would go to try to sleep, the hard drive would just keep constantly trying to access something.
Summary: First thing I should say is I recently upgraded my desktop to Win7 Pro x64. I had Vista before and my comp would crash anytime it did any moderate video processing, so I wasn't worried about a video card. Once I installed 7 and started playing some games, I realized that the onboard GPU just wasn't cutting it. For under $100 this card delivers the goods, its comparable to the nVidia 9800GTX and in one of my games I went from 5-7fps to 40+fps with no tweaking.
Summary: I have to choose between this Radeon HD 5670 and the Nvidia Geforce GT 240. After comparing the product features and the hardware, I realized that the HD 5670 could bring much more value for the same price. The support for DirectX 11 is an advantage which the Nvidia counterpart doesn't have, besides the fact it has more cores, more memory bandwidth, a more robust heat sink, better driver support, 40 nm manufacturing process and a higher GPU clock.
Very good value, one of the best "no extra power connector" video cards

Summary: I probably wouldn't have bought this last year when it came out at a little less than $100. But almost a year and a half later it's basically $30 bucks less, so to me this made it a really good value for an entry-level video card for gaming at around 1440x900 or 1280x800 on medium settings for current games. You can even push some games to 1680x1050 (I was playing Crysis 2 at this res, but only on gamer settings, for advanced settings I knocked it down to 1440x900).
Summary: Item was fine with fast shipping and great packaging. It's the 10 dollar rebate I have issues with, after going through numerous operations unlike any other rebate I have done, I come to find out it's only available if I SIGN UP FOR A CREDIT CARD which I DON'T WANT.
Summary: This is a pretty good card for an entry level card. At first, when I plugged in my monitor and my projector, it did not recognize the projector. But when I went into the advanced part of the CCC and selected the second monitor, it worked like a charm.
