Since your budget is for a single card, I wouldn't look at anything less then the 5830 which comes in under budget.
Thanks for the info on the Sapphire, the cooler looks beastly, I like the 5 heat pipes! Do you have voltage control? You have a very nice clock. My PSU should be fine for a while as 4770 Crossfires ment to use a tiny more power.

Thanks for the advice.

alll 5830's do not offer voltage control unless it is from either MSI or Asus last time i looked

Thanks for that, I thought so but hes got a fairly beastly Clock so I though he might have needed more volts.

he might have been lucky cause every chip is different
he may have gotten one that requires less volts to run at that clock

I think if you do the core first then the memory you'll be fine.

There is no voltage control but I believe there is a pencil mod to increase voltages, there is a thread on this forum detailing it for the 58xx sapphire blue PCB cards. Even if you only get 960ish or something it's still a quick bugger. There really isn't much difference when you're talking only 40Mhz. At 50% fan speed, it is no louder then my Sapphire 5770 v2 was at the same setting.

If you're fine without a tonne of AA you'll love the card. Pretty much every game that isn't Crysis, Metro 2033, Blur and Split Second I run 4xAA, sometimes 8x(Devil May Cry 4 stuff like that). 16xAF has no performance impact. I run 1680x1050, but 1080p works just fine on my TV.
