they clearly are meant to represent different price points... but i'm inclined to say 5770 performs good..

Ummm I will give my infamous "It depends" response.

If you want to Overclock, the MSI 5770 HAWK is going to give you the best bang for your buck.

If you do not intend to overclock, I would select a different 5770 1GB card.

The MSI 5750 you pointed out is a good price for that model. However, a 5770 performs 10-15% better than a 5750. So it depends on what you are after.

I always direct people to the 5770 cards because they are the mainstream gaming card to get. For $150-$160 you get a good deal. If you have a limited budget I go for the 5750. The price/performance on that 5750 might be better than a 5770, but it doesn't beat it out by much. And in my opinion the 5770 1GB is worth the extra few bucks.

Now the 5830 is another debate. I do not like that card. And I am safe to say it is a STUPID card. I don't throw that word around much, but it is plain ass stupid and was made to fill a void and they did it in the dumb way. I would take the MSI 5770 and overclock the crap out of it before I get a 5830.

@Jay2

It was either release a 5830, or simply throw away all the chips in the wafer that did not achieve the targeted spec.

@OP;
The cheapest HD5750 is $120 after a $20 rebate, or $130 not after rebate. The cheapest HD5770 is $135 after rebate, or $150 not after. $15 (or $5) for that much of an increase performance will nearly always justifiy the HD5770 over the HD5750.

They could have put it on a small board though. Like a 5850 board not a 5870 board. And it consumes more power than a 5850. Blah. Maybe cause it is based on the 5870 board components. Who knows the technical details behind it.

I'm assuming that they took every single board that didn't meet the 5850 spec, and raised the voltage to an equal (but higher) level. That got every board to HD5830 spec, and they could sell them. My guess is that you can indeed get an HD5830 undervolted, but to be safe, all volts were raised.

Though I'm probably just rambling about things I don't know :)

Who knows what they did. I just did a quick read and the 5830 is actually a crippled 5870 GPU, which is probably why it is on the same board. You would think they would have at least gave it it's own smaller board.
