2 5850 is a 5970 so maybe 2 5830 is like a 5870? Sorry, just a ball park estimate I'm sure someone will chime in with a more educated post.

I'm going to guess two 5830s are close to one 6970.

2 5830s are basically 2 5770s so around faster than 1 5870

2 5830's should outperform a 5870 in most cases.

2X HD5830's should be between an HD6950 and HD6970. Or a GTX 570

They would probably be a tad faster than a 5870 most likely. A little slower than a 6950

Read second post, so I was right after all. Just google 5830cf vs 5870 youll get all kinds of interesting info...

Also, I would just get a 5870. You won't have to deal with the problems xfire brings and less heat and better OC because with xfire your OC is limited to one or the others max OC so if one can OC really well but the other can't your kinda stuck.
Xfire, like SLI, really only brings benefits when you're pairing two high end cards.

If you Xfire those, the issues inherent to multiple cards setups will be there in full force but with very little performance benefit. They'll scale like garbage.

Save up a bit, get a single 570 or even 580 so that your poor Phenom isn't beaten into a coma and enjoy the eye candy. That's my suggestion!
