Also another question. Even if the card does work or not, which is better for your buck?

  1. yes it will

    5850 is better no contest, but i dont know if the toxic edition is worth the extra, it's up to you, really

    5830 is too crippled for the price, only like 7% faster than 5770

  2. It's a bit faster than the normal 5850 that is at 725 mhz the toxic is at 765 mhz.

  3. yeah, i know that, and it has better cooler. But you can OC the stock version as well...
  4. But can't you over clock the toxic, as well. Or is it already over clocked?
  5. jdog the 5830 is really only worth it if you want to OC, otherwise it is far to close to the performance of a 4890 for a 60-80 dollar price on it ( you can get a 4890 for 160ish on tigerdirect ). The only worthwhile thing the 5830 has to offer over its competition is its OC headroom because it is such a crippled beast.

    You can OC the toxic too, but there isnt any reason to pay the extra money for an OC'ed card when it is so simple to do it yourself (CCC Comes with a tab to OC, which will surpass any factory OC and it takes just seconds to do ). So there isnt any reason to pay the extra price unless you really want to for the looks.
  6. Yea I don't want to pay for a already over clock card. That way I was asking, is the toxic card, already over clocked.

    Yes it is, by a very, very small amount.
  8. alright good to know.
  9. truhls/jdog, not only is the TOXIC version OC'd, it has a better cooler to allow for such overclocks.
  10. So do you you think it is worth it cause it is built for being overclocked like it is? Also, its it better to have them over clock it professional?
