  1. Hmm HD 5830 isn't a recommended buy now but to your credit $159.99AR is as good as it gets for that card! If all HD 5830s are priced similarly and come with smoking combos we truly are spoilt for choices ^^ That said for a couple of hundreds less u could really go 2 rungs higher in the GPU performance ladder hehe
