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.
