Summary: Fantastic upgrade and so easy. I added it to my HP Pavilion p6270z running Win7 64-bit, took 10 minutes to install, 15 minutes total after downloading and installing new driver package from [...]. Amazing thing about this card is that it doesn't require external power, so all I had to do was open the case, plug it in, close the case, switch the video cable from the existing plug to the plug on the card, and turn the system back on. Once back in Windows, went to [...
ATI is definitely better than nVidia, and I love the 5670!

Summary: I've had this for a couple of days now, but I gotta say it's one heck of an improvement over a Radeon HD4550 with 512MB of DDR2. Don't get me wrong, the 4550 is real nice, but the one issue I had with it, was the fact that it had a fan that was a little noisy for my liking. Maybe the XFX version of that card is like that, I'm not sure, so who knows. Anyway, I had no trouble putting this card in my HP desktop. Mine is a mid-tower, but the fit of the card was just perfect.
Summary: This is a great little card for use in an HTPC. This replaced a BFG 9800GT in the system because I needed an HDMI output. One thing that surprised me was the lack of a need to hook up a separate power connector to the card. It is hooked up to my 37" Vizio SV370XVT and does a wonderful job running XBMC. It also does a good job running some games, though that's not it's primary use on this system.

Summary: After my old 256MB video card burnt-out, it seemed that I would never be able to find a decent replacement which was short enough to fit in my system. All of the newer cards seemed to fall in the 8" - 8 1/2" range. Due to the placement of a heat-sink on my mother-board, none of these was going to work in my system. Just when I thought that I would never find a card which would suit my needs, I came a-cross the Sapphire HD 5670.
Summary: It's a very good graphic card, very quiet, and only consumes about 75 watts. But I was wrong to buy a motherboard (Asus P5G41C-M) that does not supports PCIe 2.0 (just PCIe), so I'm not using the full potential of this card. So choose carefully!
Summary: Great card so far as to my HTPC(no gaming here), downloaded lastest drivers from Sapphire and encountered no problems at all. Amazon is a great alternative for buying Electronic products besides the bricks and motar stores. Amazon with its timely free shipping option on certain items is very competitive if not better than our local b&m price wise here.
