I'm sure people will want me to tell them how it works with various games. I'm afraid I can't since I don't use them. I am, however, an avid user of Microsoft Flight Simulator X and can tell you that this card is superior in every way to the 8800GTX. Scenery textures are crisp with no blurries, FPS run 10% higher or more and light bloom looks a lot better.
This isn't the biggest and baddest card out there, but it amply fills my needs. I had seen a number of forum posts about people having problems with Windows 7 64 bit, but installing the latest drivers went flawlessly. My only complaint is that the Catalyst software can be a bit obscure about how to change certain settings, but I'll get used to it.
When I purchased this card I was very happy and I have enjoyed a very good run with it. This is still a really nice card and I have enjoyed it for the time I have had it. But the future is here. It can no longer play some of the newer games at optimal performances as I stated in the past. Some newer graphically rich games such as the witcher 2 can give it a run for its money even at the lower settings. This new review is not to discourage you from looking at this card as an option if you are looking for something at budget. But if you want a card that will last you into the next generation of games. it may be time to look at newer video card options. That said, it can still handle most games very well at the time of this review.
For the price, it's a very nice video card for this kind of games. If you want to play more video-demanding games, you should check another one.
After a lot of research, I decided the 5770 was the best value GPU for my PC. I didn't want to spend 2-3x as much for a card that would have it's performance bottlenecked by the CPU. This graphics card alone increased my benchmark score on high from 300 to 2100. While that is low for FFXIV, this card is more than sufficient to run the game on standard settings at 1920X1080 with a good frame rate (outside of towns anyways haha). The frame rate (of course) increases when running at lower resolution, but I have a 25" 1920X1080 monitor and FFXIV looks beautiful and smooth when it fills the screen. FFXIV is probably the most demanding game currently available for PC in terms of CPU and GPU power. Most cards that run FFXIV on standard settings, will run other games on max settings with no problems.
In short, this is a great value card for the older processors. If you have an I7 or equivalent CPU, then I would consider spending more on a better card such as the 5870. The Sapphire card didn't take up much space in my small tower, and it doesn't run hot. I am overall very happy with this card and I would recommend it to others.
Two important things to keep in mind before you buy: this card takes up two slots; even though it plugs into the PCI-e port, it's a thick card that stacks the DVI jacks, so you need to make sure you have two rear bays open. Also, you'll likely need to upgrade your power supply because the unit requires a minimum PS of 450W; most systems are sold with 300 or 350W. I had to buy a Corsair 650W TX, which is a very nice unit.
It's also a long card, which should fit in most ATX cases--but best to be sure to avoid surprises. Final note: download the newest driver package off the website rather than using the enclosed CD (always recommended). I've only used the card for a day, but thus far I'm impressed.
