Get the 5830, it IS a better card.


EDIT: Thought you were choosing between the two.

It's better, but the GTX 460 1Gb is better value for money (upgraded to one from a 5770 myself, definately worth it, it also smokes the 5830)

5770 used to be the best bang for buck card but after nvidia started releasing the GTX460 the crown has been taken. The gtx 460 performs slightly better than a 5830 at stock but has LOTS of headroom for OC'ing. imho the 5830, while it performs great is not the best u could do with that price range, that it why lots of people advise to stay clear from it. If I were you I would get the GTX460 but if you want an ati card out of those two i would just get the 5770 and xfire in the future.

Go 5850 or gtx 470...nothing else is fast enough to warrant upgrading to.

Although I'm an Ati fanboy,
i'm telling you to stay away from hd5830,
its not a good upgrade over hd5770.
For the same price tag you could get gtx460 which beats hd5830 + consumes less power + produces less heat + overclocks better.
So gtx460 is the best bang for buck.
If you want to stick with Ati get a hd5850,
its a good upgrade over hd5770 + it beats both gtx460 & hd5770.

You could pick hd5850 for $249 at new egg

Hope you like my reply

Why? Eyefinity performance with a single 5770 is horrible. You can't really game comfortably in Eyefinity with anything less than a 5870.

The HD5830 outperforms the 5770, but it is not worth the money.

Granted, it is a true upgrade instead of a sidegrade, but the performance increase isn't worth the cash increase.

Get a 5850, or a second 5770 to CF.
