4.0 out of 5 stars Value for money, 25 Sept. 2011
This review is from: Sapphire 11167-04-20R HD 5570 1GB DDR3 Graphics Card (Accessory)
I got this card because of its reasonable price and high rated reviews.

INSTALL:
Despite feeling quite anxious about opening up my Dell Inspiron 570 (1.5 years old), I was surprised by how quick and easy it was to change the card. A reasonably simple pop-out-pop-in process (although I DO recommend watching a "how to change your graphics card" video on youtube or something if this is your first time as there a few things you have to consider that I, personally, would not have thought of otherwise! E.g. an anti-static wrist band to ensure you do not damage any components inside your computer).

PERFORMANCE:
There was a massive jump in my Windows rating from my inbuilt graphics card. I can easily max-out games like Team Fortress, however another favourite of mine "Elder Scrolls IV :Oblivion" is played on Medium-High settings (but this is still very, very nice looking and there is very little issue with mouse lag or frame rate).
This performance is by no means the best in the world but for what you pay I think it is very reasonable and a lot A LOT better than the graphics cards that come with most prebuilt desktops.

AFTERCARE:
I've not had to interact with AMD or anyone associated directly, however Sapphire do offer a very nice service to the tune of "Sapphire Select Club" which basically offers rewards to Sapphire card owners. Check out their webpage for more details its stuff like software downloads and raffles to win newer graphics cards!

TL;DR:
Good value for money. Improvement on prebuild graphics card. Comes with cool reward service.
