My 9800GTX recently died and I'm looking to replace it. Trying to get the most bang for my buck, limited to $200-$250 USD. I really only need it to last a year or two and I don't really play many graphic intensive games. Just Source games and League of Legends right now. Diablo 3 and SC2 when they come out as well as WoW whenever the next xpac comes out.

I'm looking at the 5770 for now but people have also suggested the 5830 or a GTX260. I really haven't been paying attention to hardware for the last year or two so I don't really have any idea of what's best right now.

Also I'm running an Asus P5K Deluxe which I believe is PCI-E 1.0 or 1.1. I really doubt it's 2.0 since everywhere I look it's just labeled as "PCI-E." Anyways would a PCI-E 2.0 or 2.1 card work ok in a 1.0/1.1 slot?

yes any of those cards will work fine on your motherboard.

If its only for a year then just get the cheapest, any of the cards you listed will be fine for the games you play.

The 5830 is expensive for what it is (IMO). The 5770 and 260 are pretty similar in performance, but the 5770 has DX11 support, uses less power and produces less heat.

So I'd recommend the HD5770.

I have three 5770s in two computers. All run like champions. You can't go wrong with a 5770.

+1 for the 5770, the 5830 is only worth the money if you plan to OC it pretty hard.

From what it looks like the 5830 will not OC very much. ATI reduced the number of cores by 320 and boosted the clock by 100 or so MHZ. So dont expect a lot of OC from the 5830....I think the 5770 is the best for the money and it has the latest graphics technology.

Another bit of info.....
The 5830 is built on the 5870 platform because it has to use the beefed up power supply (because of the high factory clock). Just one more reason i wouldnt expect alot.

Most OC's using CCC get close to 900/1200, if you go around CCC you can get over 1000/1300 fairly well, which is about 20-30% OC Headroom. That is really good compared to a lot of other GPU's.
