Do not buy XFX cards. They're cheaply made blocks of garbage, and their customer service will have you pulling your hair out when your card fails. In three months, I went through two of their 5850s, during which time I had zero heat issues with the cards. After my first RMA (for which I had to pay $16 shipping across the country), they sent me a stripped down 5850 with an earlier version of cooler than the one I originally purchased. That one failed shortly afterwards. Horrible.

Sapphire is one of the best AMD card manufacturers out there. Definitely choose that one if you go with the 5830.

In terms of performance, the 5830 is very similar to the 4890 and thus, the GTX275.

You'll like it.

Please don't complain about quality right after I said that the pcb is identical. They are the same exact card. In addition from my experience with xfx so far I have been pleased with their support. I had asked them a question once and they responded quickly and completly answered my question. While admitidly I will say I have no rma experience with actually any of my parts(I am very lucky I geuss).

In addition I will not debate the overall quality of XFX as they are know to make silent revisions without changing any pacakaging just the sticker on the board, however the xfx 5830 is a quality card in my opinion.

I have the 5830 and your resolution. I can play pretty much everything maxed with 2 or 4xAA and have decent fps (above 30 which is good for me).

Thread Starter 
thanks for the responses guys. I think im going to go with the 5830 sapphire, its 100 bucks at a store near me. I tried overclocking my e8400 yesterday on intel desktop control center with the dp45sg mobo to ensure my cpu wont bottleneck the 5830. I could get it to 3.5 stable by just raising the host clock frequency. But when i try to go higher and raise the voltage the comp crashes, any ideas why? I have a good asus cooler on it too. Thanks

I just ordered the sapphire 5830 from newegg. I hope we're both happy with the purchases!

I have no knowledge of overclocking intel cpu's however, it is most liklely your ram is getting clocked to high with the clock freq. increase. Go into your bios and set the ram multi down one notch and try to go higher, that is most likely the problem. I learnt that from when I first started overclocking my cpu(which is now at stock because of summer temps).

Hey 3.5 isn.t a bad clock..but B.I.F is prob. rite. your ram speed is prob. getting to high and crashing your computer. you can either bump the ram voltage up a little or just lower the ram multi.
