is better now?
will be more future proof?
has better features?
I am torn that the 460 is 128 bit and that the 5830 is bad at DX11 tessellation, will a driver fix that later?
Does 768mb vs 1gb make any real difference.
Price between the two make no difference to me this is just a whats better.
I use my rig a media center, play all games at 1080p on my monitor and 52" TV. The rest of system is strong i7 920DO, 6gbs ssd, 6gb ram. I am not OC anything right now, just seems unnecessary right now.
I'd just wait for 6000 series or get a GTX 460 they quite a bit more powerful than the 5830. I would recommend getting the 1GB version. They have a bigger buffer and a increased ROP count AND they are 256-bit.
