XFX Radeon HD 5830?

Is this a good reliable card I can use for year or more (likely more) in a 500 budget build to get good/decent settings & fps on most new games?

I am running a E5700 oc' to 4.0ghz with four gigs DRR3 dual channel.

    6850, faster than a 5830, consumes less energy, has stronger DX11 performance, and is a shorter card.

    5830 are selling cheap as AMD is trying to clear inventory.
  4. how bad will my Pentium E5700 bottleneck it?
  5. I agree with a 6850 being a good place to look on new egg they are within your budget i beleive.

    I would think you will be ok to play it at a reasonable level not max settings but not too far away i would guess.
