4 out of 5 eggsSolid Card

Pros: heavy, runs cool, fan never leaves 40% (granted I dont have any new games that would really push it), sips power compared to my old 9800GT during normal use
CUDA, Adobe Premiere Mercury Playback Engine Support
blower design is very effective, and quiet compared to many other cards.
Does not blow hot air back into the case!
MSI Afterburner reports things correctly on this board.
First time buyer of Sparkle (due to a great rebate!), and will consider them again in the future.

Cons: While quieter than most, it is by far the loudest thing in my case, and I cannot wait to replace the fan with an aftermarket one.
There is some confusion on the product line. This is the one I purchased, but according to the manufacturer's website I received the factory OC model. Not that I mind that much having a faster than advertised card, but there are no clear markings to know exactly what was purchased, and I find that annoying.
Had issues with the install disc that came with it. Auto play would not work properly, and the installer would crash. I suggest not bothering with the disc and just go to nVidia's website to get the latest driver.
Other than these small issues I am very pleased with it :)

Other Thoughts: While sparkle is not one of those brands that you brag about to your friends, I have to say that I love this card! I knew it would be big, but I actually laughed out loud when I opened the box... it is just massive, though it fit fine in my mid sized tower (thermaltake V3 black). I am not much of a gamer (newest games I have played are Dragon Age Origins, and Mass Effect 2), but I am confident it will play any game I throw at it for the next few years... and then I can SLi :).
I purchased this specifically for rendering effects and transitions in Adobe Premiere as the 570 GPU is supported for the Mercury Playback Engine, and I must say that I am happy for that one feature alone. The fact that it takes less power than my old card in day-to-day use, as well as the ability to handle high end workloads is just a plus!

5 out of 5 eggsBeast

Pros: Big beast of a card. Has run everything I've thrown at it on ultra high settings with no hiccups and great frame rates. Looking forward to Skyrim with it next week!

Cons: Like I said, it is BIG. If you don't have a full tower case or full size atx mobo, it may not fit. That's not a con for me, but might be for you.

Other Thoughts: I had a sparkle card for an old AGP machine years ago and was happy with it. Hadn't used one for a while but when I saw them at a little better price than their competition with the warranty (if you hadn't noticed, check out the warranty,) it was a no brainer. Get this card. You won't regret it :)

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Quiet
Runs cool
Powerful
Runs all my games well

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: Have not had any dealings with customer service so I can't rate their effectiveness. Decided to take a chance with this manufacturer based on review comments as well as my findings on build quality.

Pros: Cost is a bit lower than some of the others.
Runs cool even under loads
Quiet
Does well in all my games

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I've not had any dealings with Sparkle in the past and was a little hesitant to invest my hard earn dollars on a VC from these folks. So far so good.

5 out of 5 eggsFantabulous

Pros: Installed into my Thermaltake Armor case in about 5 minutes. It replaced a XFX GTX 260, which I also purchased from Newegg (great card also). But this 570 wipes the floor with the older 260, which I expected. But wow, it really is a sight to behold. With the performance of this card I just don't see the need for me to pay $150 or more extra for the 580.
Runs cooler than the 260 too, stress tests only brought it up to 65' max. MSI Afterburner is an excellent monitoring tool, works on all brands as far as I can tell.

Cons: None at this time

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome Card

Pros: This card is about the best you can get for the price range. I on the InVidia boar I would only suggest that the $500.00+ GTX580 is better right now. But for almost $200.00 less this card performs just as expected. Almost all games I play I can run in the highest settings, and even Crysis will run on the highest settings if you disable the Anti-Aliasing. The benchmarks I'm FPS I'm pulling on high FULL GPU Settings are: Crysis-49fps, Nexuiz-75fps (multiplayer), Unreal3-60fps, CoD:BO-62fps, WoW-180fps, BFBC2-64fps, L4D2-88fps (multiplayer)... Of course turning settings down to human levels will improve this 10 fold as these are all maxed out settings. On just high settings I'm pulling down 100fps in Black Ops, so very impressive.

Cons: Like all InVidia cards this thing drinks power like Gatorade. And though it operates under spec temps, the newer cards run hotter than I'm used to so it always gets me nervous. Playing Crysis on full settings I watched it get up to 54c and was still climbing... still not as bad as the 85c that my 4 series card was running. If you can get a case with some serious fan power. The card itself is pretty bulky, but if you're buying this card you probably are prepared for that anyway. I have an HAF case and there was plenty of room. This is a full tower card. It would probably run way to hot in a mid tower even if you could get it to fit.

Other Thoughts: Over all I'm very happy and will probably buy a second one to fill out my system in about a week. Newegg got it to me a day early too, so it was a nice surprise waiting for me when I got home.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Card, small issues.

Pros: As far as graphics go, this card is great. It runs every game I have on high settings, but not all of them on very high. The fan is quiet with the only noise being from the air it blows when it picks up speed to cool the card.

Cons: I had 2 issues when installing this card.

1. The card IS huge, like the other review says. I had to take the case off of the card to make it fit in my PC because of one simple screw on a fan was in the way.

2. The card puts out audio through and HDMI port, and it overrode my on-board sound card. I think it's an IRQ or Memory I/O issue, because while the card is plugged in, the on-board card disappeared from the device manager. To fix this, I ordered a new sound card, and everything is fine.

Other Thoughts: If you don't have something that can receive HDMI audio, then be careful when buying this card. Google searches showed that the sound issue is very common with this series.

If you don't have a large case, this also may not be the card for you. It's a biggin.

But, for graphic quality and fps, this card will deliver on those aspects very well.

5 out of 5 eggsFast GPU

Pros: Very Fast in video games, it has destroyed every game that I have thrown at it at far, which include Crysis, Just Cause 2, and S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Pripyat. In Metro 2033, it runs the game at high settings very well, I haven't bothered with trying very high settings though. The card also runs very cool and the fan is very silent.

Cons: none thus far.

Other Thoughts: Make absolute sure that your GPU can fit in your case, there is no doubt at all that this card is big. It barely fit in my Coolermaster Storm Scout, but to my luck at least fit with about .5 inches to spare. Also if you buy this brand make sure you register your GPU at Sparkle's USA website so you have the lifetime limited warrenty, just in case you have any problems with the card.
