I have a 4850, should i upgrade to a 5830? would it be worth it? I have a Phenom II X3 if that helps.

<I>I don’t recommend upgrading your graphics card unless the replacement card is at least three tiers higher. Otherwise, the upgrade is somewhat parallel and you may not notice a worthwhile difference in performance.</I>

I don't think you need to upgrade. DX11 is nice and shiny but there's like 4 games for it and the differences are barely noticeable. I'd wait for the 6000 series cards or the Nvidia equiv

alright, i think im just going to upgrade to crossfire. Ill just buy another XFX 4850 then. I play Bad company 2 on a 23 inch screen, 1920x1080 resolution. So crossfire will hopefully help a little.

HD4850 CF is a much better option for you.

It will be more powerful than a single 5830 and that too for less money.

Make sure your PSU can handle the load of 2 4850's and your mobo supports CF :)

Ummm....sigma doesn't seems to be a very good quality unit.

however since it is 750W it should work with those cards.

I'd say go for it :)

Yeah, BC2 is alot better than MW2, in my opinion that is. But yeah, ive upgraded to crossfire, and all i have to say is the difference is insane. Although for some reason on one of the maps where its like 3 islands and water all around the water stutters alot. Idk, maybe its the drivers? but it only happens on one particular server.
