Anyone know how noisy the fan is? I think I'd rather have something with a big heatsink so it will be silent.

ATI Radeon HD 5570 512MB GDDR5 DX11 Video Card Review
hitechlegion.com/rev…iew

Would this card be okay for playing HD video through HDMI on a 37" 1080p TV? Currently have a HD350 which came with the computer, but the HD video is quite stuttery and would love for someone to advise me on what I need. (Processor shouldn't be a problem as I have a Quad core 2.4GHz processor)

Who can benefit from the 5570 and it's improved DDR5 memory? First off, I can see HTPC's getting a nice boost. The ATI Stream technology allows these users to save CPU cycles and increase the performance on HD videos as well as take advantage of the BitStreaming technology for Blu-Ray playback. Secondly, I can see workstations taking advantage of the 5570. Eyefinity allows for multiple monitor support. ATI Stream will allow for better workstation performance in the programs that support it. Lastly, I can see the very budget minded, but higher level user, using the 5570. It comes equipped with enough features and DX11 support to allow for higher level computing without breaking the wallet. I was able to lightly game, watch HD videos, and transcode movies with this video card and a budget oriented system and not run into any problems.

To be honest it's most likely a player setup issue than a hardware issue.

Can you double check what gfx card you have, not sure there's such a thing as a HD350

Good card at reasonable price, shame it's not low profile for my HTPC.

Thats what I want to know as well. My current Nvidia card is noisey as hell.

might be, never tried it myself. What are you trying to play bluray discs or mkv's?

most people you use media player classic or mpc-hc.sourceforge.net/ have you tried either of those and either ffdshow or coreavc
