The Radeon HD 5570 is a budget graphics card currently available from ATI. The card is among the usual releases that occur during the end of a current generation of cards that offers a very high level of performance for its cost. Although it won't provide the same level of graphical power that comes from high-end cards, the Radeon HD 5570 can comfortably run any game available at the time of the card's release and most games in the near future. Graphical settings will not be able to be set to maximum on all games, but most can be run on higher settings than a card typically found at this price range. Additionally, the card operates with very little power, only 45 watts while under full load, and can even support triple monitor displays. A computer with comparable specifications is required to utilize this card.

People should be aware that the XFX version of this card (as opposed to the Sapphire, HIS, PowerColor, etc) is a DDR2 card while all other builds are DDR3... And it costs about the same. So look out for that.
