PNY VCGGTX650XPB GeForce GTX 650 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Compact size, good performance, low heat generation

Cons: They packed the card in a box and put the packing material on top so the card box took the full brunt of a drop. I took an egg off.

Other Thoughts: Teaching employees the benefits of proper packing reduces returns and angry customers because of shipping damage.

1 out of 5 eggs TO CHEAP TO INCLUDE A LOW-PROFILE BRACKET 03/30/2011

This review is from: SPARKLE SXS250512D3L-NM GeForce GTS 250 512MB 256-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

Pros: low profile

Cons: no low-profile bracket included, must buy elsewhere and pay $8.99 with shipping for a 10 cent piece of metal EVERYONE else includes. Last Sparkle card I will ever buy and you would be advised to avoid a cheap company like this.

SAPPHIRE 100293DP Radeon HD 5570 1GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Low Profile Ready Video Card w/ Eyefinity
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Small, have bought it before for use in other systems. Works well in small cases or desktops with a limited footprint.

Cons: Built a small footprint desktop using an Antec Minuet case, Asrock 945 GCM-S MB (latest bios) and Intel E6820 cpu with 4GB ram, Raptor HD Win7 Pro 64 bit. Worked PERFECTLY with a 1GB 9500GT XFX card and with 220W Antec power supply, which this 5570 SHOULD have worked in, but didn't. Worked like a charm in my old Dell 626 with a 180W power supply however but that's not the PC I bought it for.

Other Thoughts: Bought one elsewhere, shipped it back because I thought it was defective, but it isn't now that this one doesn't work in the system. So much time invested in the PC I'm going to leave the old 9500 GT in it. I'll use the 5570 card elsewhere.
