More about 5830 5770
  1. What's your budget and resolution and what are you using the card for?
  2. Budget: I already found the cards im thinking of getting and im asking in general which is better for gaming. If there is a card that isnt from the better series but still performs better than the better series plz mention it
  3. Im not 100% sure but i think the 5830 is sightly better performance wise but uses a lot more power, so more people go with the 5770. What games and at what resolution are u playing at.
  4. Only recently has the HD5830 been priced at a point where it makes sense to recommend. It is faster than the HD5770, by about 15-20% at high resolutions, but it does have it's disadvantages. Specifically it is significantly larger and uses a good amount more power/gives off more heat when under load.
  5. Yea I found xfx 5830 for 99 on tigerdirect, im playing modern games and want the best performance. Games Cod mw2 and 3 (when it is released) red dead redemption, crysis 2, tons of other modern games...
  6. The 5830 is only a little faster than a 5770 but sucks up alot more power. As previously stated it's only recently come down to a price that's reasonable for it's performance, but it's still a big hot power sucking card. If you're confident your PSU can handle it and a 5830 is the best you can afford then get it. If you can spend a little more get a 6850. If you're not confident in your PSU and can't get a 6850, then go with a 5770.
  7. What is your PSU??
  8. The other guy who responded said its a good amount better, plus iv heard that 6000 series is rebadged 5000 series...
  9. Any reccomended psu for 5830 ( with a low price)

    The 6000 series is for the most part not a rebadging of the 5000 series. The one exception to this is the 6770 which is a rebadged 5770 that was originally only going to be distributed to OEMs, though they are now starting to show up in retail as well.
  11. The 5830 is 15 to 20 percent ish better than the 5770. Two 5830's kicks but. The 5830 is comparable the 6850. Its the older version of that card.
  12. The 5830 isn't so popular anymore, but if you go back six months or more everyone loved it, obviously trounces the 5770.
  13. So im assuming as long as I get an ample psu its a good xhoice over 5770?

    Yes
  15. Corsair PSU ===> CORSAIR Builder Series

    39.99 w/rebate! :bounce:
  16. id get a sightly larger psu (watts) especially if u go with the 5830. I have a 550W one and it limits me quiet a bit... id get at least 700 watts. Also does anyone know of a way to tell how much power ur actually using?
  17. I have recently installed a XFX XXX edition 5830 in a PC for a friend. Going from a 4850 it made sense here in the UK to get a £84 5830 over a higher priced 5770. The 5850 was the card of choice but my friend couldn't justify the extra price when looking at benchmarks in reviews.
    I bet he is gutted now i just today received E-mail from a retailer selling teh 5850 for £99. Still you wont get anywhere if you sit and wait all the time. She was very happy with the 5830 anyway.

    Mactronix :)
