Hey guys,


My Story:
I was hoping if anyone can help me decide if 5830 a good replacement for my 9800gtx+.
At first, I was planning on selling my 9800gtx+ to a friend and use the money towards 5830, but I want hear some of the user's opinion or anyone who has a great knowledge when comes to these kinds of questions. My initial idea why I want to get 5830 is the Eyefinity technology of the 5800's cards, I apparently am not going to use it for gaming but for work. My displays are not compatible to run Eyefinity setup, because i have 2 1600x900 and 1 1920x1080. My budget is no more than $230. You may suggest a different card or something.

What I Need In A GPU:
1. Must be able to run 3 Display on single Video Card.
2. Must have atleast the same or exceed the specs of my current 9800gtx+.

My budget:
No more than $230

This is what I have at the moment.

and this is what I am planning to get, but any card will do as long as it meets my requirements.

My build atm:
Asus M4A79XTD EVO
AMD Phenom II X4 955 3.2Ghz
G-skill 4x2gb 1600
EVGA 9800gtx+
Antec TP-750W
Win7 Pro 64bit

The 5830 isn't the greatest card... I would go with the 5770 for a little bit cheaper and the performance is almost the same.

If all you want is eyefinity, the 5770 or less will be great.

I don't know much about Eyefinity cards, and I thought only the 5800's support it. Apparently I only check at the specification of Neweggs product's features if a card supports Eyefinity or not. I just really want something that can exceed my current 9800gtx+ and at the same time run 3 displays using only 1 video card.

Will the 5770 run 3 displays perhaps maybe 3 1920x1080?

If you aren't gaming, I would say yes.

^ Wrong... 5450 doesn't support eyefinity. @ Monkey_D Yes it will no problem. As long as you have 3 monitors that have 1920x1080 as its natural resolution.

I am just really going to use the card for work and not gaming, I just need to be able to run my 3 displays when I'm working. My screens arent the same resolution they are 2 1600x900 and 1 1920x1080. This computer is 90% work and 10% game. I also want to max out my $230 budget and not settle with a $160 card or $180 card.

well just buy 5850 and you will be happy for few years, not like with 5770 or 5830
5850 is fast for everything and it is not power hungry.. staying cool.. for good

God i'm so sick of hearing this statement because it's absolutely FALSE.

5830 scores 3600 points higher then a 5770.

how can one tell if a video card can support 3 displays? I dont really need Eyefinity, but I need to power up all of my 3 displays at home and use them on 3D apps and other editing software. What card do you recommend to replace my 9800gtx+. My budget is $230.

If it is just to run 3d apps and not game, a 5770 will do the trick fine. you need something with eyefinity to run 3 displays, otherwise you will need TWO cards in most cases to run 3 displays.

If you are not gaming then you certainly do not need an HD5830. It is a gaming card and pretty good one. It costs much more than you need to spend and uses much more power than you need to. Any Eyefinity card will do for your purposes. And HD5670 would be a good choice. It's still actually overpowered for your needs but it is much cheaper and it will serve you well. Here are some Eyefinity HD5670s;
