Summary: I installed the card into my lovely girlfriend's SFF PC, as an early gift. It was very easy to swap the regular plate with the included low-profile plate, with just a small Phillips screwdriver and a pair of needle-nose pliers. The card seated very easily, and all of the cables plugged in with a very secure click. The system booted up without any problems, and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit recognized it almost immediately.
Summary: I'd suggest saving up for at least a 6570. Other then that this thing overclocks fairly nicely. Got it from 625 to 778 core clock and from 667 to 875 memory clock no problems. Runs at about 50C with the overclock under full load. Plays BF3 w/ the 8570D (dual graphics mode) at about 25-40 fps on custom: Everything that has the word "Ultra" is on ultra (shadows, effects etc) with the overclock.

Summary: Arrived on time. Installed in Dell Optiples 755 SFF. Tried to use both slot plates to have both a DVI and VGA connector but the card's cable for VGA is too short to reach the plate. But it would reach if you did not use the plate. As far as operation, there is no improvement in my monitor's performance except that this card does have the proper resolution for it. It may mean that I just have not discovered the proper settings for my monitor.
Summary: I should have done a little more research before purchasing this product.. Easy install and Good product for the price but def not something to push games through.. We have this installed on our home cpu that everyone uses and i have several games on.. I was looking for something that would load games faster and stream HD video to our LG TV but this is barely an upgrade from the factory gpu.. if your looking for an hdmi port this will work but lacks as an upgrade..
Summary: I bought this to go with my barebones system. I got a 450w PSU with it. Works great with low power systems. I played SWTOR and worked on lowest settings for several months. If you're going to upgrade to better graphics card upgrade the PSU first. Decent card for the price.
