is there a big difference between the 5770 and 5830 besides the memory interface? what does memory interface do anyways? will it make me bottleneck?

Yeah, a hd5830 would be good too. You probably wouldn't get any major bottleneck.

This is a very good card. I recommend.

You just recommended the EXACT same card I did..... I know it is out of stock too, but that's not a long wait..... Why did you tell me not to recommend something, and then go ahead and recommend it? :o

For the $120 to $150 price range there's only one intelligent option: GTX 460.

$150 - $20 MIR.

Galaxy 768mb for $150 - $40 MIR.

Just sold out:

ASUS GTX 460 1gb for $150 - $30 MIR.

The 5770 is one of the WORST VALUE cards you can buy unless that 50W TDP makes a difference (it almost never does).

In a storebought system (e.g. Dell or Gateway), likely containing a marginal PSU, that 50W can make every difference. Before you buy a new GPU, consider power usage. You say you can't OC your processor; that implies to me a storebought system, and those tend to have "adequate" PSUs, but certainly nothing that would support a major upgrade. The HD5770 uses less power under load than the GTX460 or HD5830. Storebought systems may not have good airflow either, something else to consider; the HD5770 also runs cooler.
Considering what you have now, and that you do not want to spend a lot of money, look at your resolution. If it is up to 1440x900, take a long hard look at the HD5670. It blows your current card out of the water. Up to 1680x1050? Look at the HD5750. Anything stronger may need a PSU upgrade first. Please provide more information about your system, so we can tell if these issues are relevant.

Slickdeals it sir. You can get a 460 for $150 after rebate. They've been popping in out of deals. Just make sure you keep searching, don't wait for it to go front page or else you'll probably be OOS.

OEMs like Dell actually have high quality power supplies. In fact all Dell PSUs are 80+.

Like I said the 5770 is a horrible value and you're retarded if you buy one new.
