Gtx 460 768mb vs gtx 460 1gb vs hd 5830 regarding prices

If I can get

Msi hawk hd 5830 for $168,

evga gtx 460 768 mb for $158,

msi cyclone gtx 460 1gb for 198,

which one would you recommend?

or should I wait for msi hawk gtx 460 1gb?

My current set up:

core i5 750 @ stock
asus p7p55-m mobo
g.skill 12800 ddr3 4gb 9-9-9-24 ram
antec neo eco 520c power supply
ocz vertx 2 120gb ssd
PNY 1gb gts 250
Nzxt Lexa S mid tower case
i-inc 25" 1920x1080p lcd monitor

I play sc2, and bfbc2
My mobo got only one pcie 2.0 x16 lane so I wouldn't be sli or xfire anytime soon. But, definitely I will buy mobo later and sli (or xfire).

  1. The GTX 460 1GB..
  2. GTX 460 1GB gets my vote! What resolution do you play at?
  3. He said 1920x1080

    Yeah GTX460 1gb is what I'd go with as well. Especially for under $200, that's $30 off what they usually are.

    HD5830 would be 2nd choice probably, would avoid cards under 1gb with a 1920x1080 or higher monitor when purchasing a new card. (Not that the ones with less can't do ok, just that I wouldn't buy a new one with less)
  4. Ahh I see now, guess I missed it. Getting late here. :P

    Even more so, then!
  5. I'd recommend the MSi cyclone for that price and resolution, It does however have a large fan on it that may hinder a SLi setup or other aftermarket parts such as CPU coolers in some circumstances. If you supply a technical specification of your current PC I can recommend what you buy based on this.

    Considering the HD5830 is $30-40 cheaper ($180) and benches higher, I'd go for that.

    Perhaps you should look at the actual results in games and more than one review rather than base what you say on a synthetic benchmark from one source. Just a suggestion.

    You have a GTS 250, not bad at all. Wait until the end of the year and see what's up.

    Edit: Or if you didn't include the selling of your 250 in your budget, sell that and get a HD 5850.

    I did, maybe you should read the last part of the post title: "regarding prices".

    Regarding prices, the 768mb GTX460 competes with the HD5830.

    Not only is it $30-40 cheaper but you can expect another price drop by next week.

    Most sites have the 768mb beating the HD5830 and I did read the post and he says he can get the 768mb for less.
  9. Yes, at 1080p.
  10. Price drops apply on both sides. There's already a 768mb cards on newegg for $180, $20 less than the cheapest HD5830. There was an HD5830 for $170 shipped with a promo code the other day which was a nice deal though.
