OC'd MSI R5770 Hawk vs HIS HIS iCooler V HD 5830

Hi, I ordered the MSI R5770 Hawk for my system but the vendor just emailed me saying that the Hawk is out of stock. I will have to wait a few days or they might be able to replace it with HIS iCooler V H583FN1GD Radeon HD 5830 at the same price.

I don’t know anything about HIS nor the performance of HD 5830. I did plan to overclock the MIS Hawk, so how is the performance of overclocked MSI Hawk compare to the HIS iCooler V H583FN1GD? My power supply is only 500W, is it even capable for this HIS HD 5830? Please help!

Thank you in advance for the answers/comments.

Here is my system:

HP Pavilion p6280t PC
• Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
• Intel(R) Core(TM) 2 Quad processor Q8400 [2.66GHz, 4MB L2, 1333MHz FSB]
• 8GB DDR2-800MHz SDRAM [3 DIMMs]
• 640GB 7200 rpm SATA 3Gb/s hard drive
• Antec Neo Power PSU 500W w/2X 6-pin

  1. Take the HIS 5830 at the Hawk's price.
    The Hawk is a interesting card, with top components. They come with a fairly high 850mhz(for the architecture) and gain about 11% max from o/c. From what I've read. The stock 5830 will be more powerful than that.
  2. take the 5830 any day. make sure you have enough room inside your case
  3. Go for the HD5830, HIS is a good brand.
  4. This HIS is priced @ around 200.00$, for 30 dollars more you can get a GTX 460 1Gb which is about 15% faster @ stock and 30% faster when OC'ed...
  5. HD5830 much better than the 5770. HIS is reputable and produce decent products that usually overclock well.

    My HIS HD4850 is O/C (625/1985 default) to (710/2225) with no Vmods.
