Most Favorable Review

Great card for the meager price

VisionTek Radeon HD 5670 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card 900310

Pros: I received the card this morning. I have put it in uploaded the drivers on the included disk, and this card is working fantastically. I tested out COD Modern Warfare and this card maxed out all settings at my monitor's highest resolution (1440x900). I was syncing every frame and getting over 70 fps constantly. I also played a little bit of Bad Company 2. I could max it out with this 5670 at about 25-30 fps, but that is a little too slow for my tastes. I bumped down the anisotropic filter and anti-aliasing and I am now up in the comfortable 40-60 fps range in BFBC2. This card performs great for the $130 it's currently priced at. This is probably the best 5670 on the market.

Cons: None as of yet. This card has exceeded my expectations. I just hope the card stays functional and works as good as it does now in the future.

Overall Review: The fan on this card blows down to the bottom of my case due to my system arrangement, but I have 2 case fans installed and my computer still stays at a good temperature with this card while running games.

Don't buy for AMD system

Pros: 1 gb of memory, inexpensive, quiet, runs almost all games on high settings, evga precision, HDMI.

Cons: Doesn't have ddr5 memory or dx11. There is a ddr5 model of this card, go with it.

Overall Review: Bought this to go into an AMD system. No matter what I did the card would freeze the entire computer when accessing flash applications. Tried updating all drivers, flashing bios, etc. Nothing worked. I believe it was conflicting with the ATI chipset in my motherboard, but even when I disabled it I had the same problem. Nothing at all would fix it. I returned it to get about a equivalent ATI card. If you are running a computer with an ATI chipset, I wouldn't take the chance of getting this.
