Got the email also. Now a 5850 is cheaper than the 5830. ATI really messed up with the pricing on the 5830, far far too high for something with slightly more performance than a 5770.

Well to be fair the 5830 is far near a 5850 than it is a 5770. But if they can put out a 5850 at sub £200 wants the initial run on the 5830 are done logically the 5830 should be sub £165.

£200 is a great price for a 5850. Hot from me.

would this be any good as a upgrade to the card in the hot dell deal, what psu would it need . would it fit into the dell vostro 430 case?
#5
You need at least a 500W power supply and the card is quite long about 9.5 inches in length.

thanks,i have no idea length of the vostro case
#7
It might fit inside, but the power supply is weak.
#8
thanks, , i have a 500w psu i can swap out from my current pc if needed, have asked on other thread as seems it will be fine.
#9
great card if your budget stretches to 200 notes. i like the value cards around 100 GBP

heat added :thumbsup:
#10
You will also need two 6 pin power connectors that go into the card, and converters are never recommended so a decent quality PSU is also recommended as opposed to a generic one that says 500w and outputs something completely different.

I have the MSI OC 5850 with a corsair 620w modular PSU, do some research on your PSU first before buying this card to make sure it's up to the job.

That is a handy little tool but is by no means definitve.

To be honest mate the vostro cases are a bit small. You may be better off with saving yourself £80 and getting a 5770. I've got one in my rig and it runs Napoleon, AvP and Just Cause 2 (demo) on max with no hiccups.

Agreed! I only get cards around the 100-130 mark, seems like the best bang for buck makes a habit of turning up in that range. Got a 4870 1GB with dual slot cooler for £107 about 6 months a go from ebuyer
#13
I've got the 5770 vapor-x version of the card in my Vostro 430. It looks huge compared to the 4350 it replaced, but works with the 350W PSU.
#14
Be very wary of the 500 W PSU issue, its not really all that dependant on the wattage more on what you have on your 12 v rail on your PSU. Cracking deal.
#15
saphire 5850 £194 at amazon, they get stock in dribs and drabs though, good deal to say dirt2 comes with it.

#17
pfft get the 5770 and overclock it. i have and its awesomeness! speeds of 945/1400 . runs extreme and quiet.
BUT if you really must have this card then its a nice price atm.
#18
one 5770 is pretty poor, crossfire 5770 are very very good., bought my two for £190 second hand.
#19
The 5850's are excellent overclockers, wil be able to get similar to 5870 performance out of them.

Actually, you can get away with a (decent) 350W PSU with these cards, they always state well over the actual required power (mainly because they have no idea how much other H/W you'll have in your case).

Of course, if you have multiple HDD's/optical drives and overclock all your components, you may need something a little bigger.

A prime example is the new HD 5570, which states a requirement of a 450W PSU, yet I have one running smoothly in my HTPC and tested without problems on a 270W PSU (PC only draws 230W max when gaming).
#20
Hot deal :thumbsup:

Prices of the HD 5850 should be going up to make room for the HD 5830.
If I had the money I would grab one of these now.
#21


If I had the money.....

Been running a 5850 since late Jan and have been very pleased with it. I would even crossfire if I was certain I could get the heat out of my small case.
Definitely check your power supply though (I'm using a Seasonic X-650 :thumbsup:)
#23
hot though be wary of powercolor cards there hell to rma to powercolour and lots of reports of faulty cards being refunded with around 30% of original cost.

im hoping my amazon sapphire 5850 will show up soon will be a bargain for £194,otherwise ill be looking to pick up the card for around same price, so anyone knows any non-powercolor 5850 bargains <£200 please let me know
#24
#25
Scorching for a 5850. Most places that have these in-stock are selling them for £230-£250.

This is better than the out-of-stock Sapphire Amazon deal because Dirt 2 is included for the extra fiver. My Amazon order has just been cancelled.
#26
carefull though: this particular powercolor model doesnt come with the needed graphics port
to run the triple monitor software
#27
Every Powercolor video card i have ever bought has gone wrong

Not a bad card and at a fair price.

Its never a win-win situation when upgrading graphics cards - there’s normally always another card that’s a bit faster, if you can afford it, and one that’s only a little slower for a bit less money that make you question yourself if need to spend all that extra money at all. Adding the to confusion you have people posting comments about how you ‘don’t need one of them, ‘but two of these instead’ etc making you think you need to spend a whole lot more than you need to…… if only we all had that much money

People must always remember that your new G’ card is only going to be as fast as your weakest link, as many (the knowledgeable ones at least) here will testify, if you’ve a slower CPU, not enough ram, poorer motherboard etc etc etc, you will only get a certain amount out of it – its like putting an engine of a Porsche in a Mini and expecting the same results as the original Porsche….. it just wont happen.

Rant over.

Respect for the rant, definitely applies to a lot of situations. I'm running an i5 750, 4gb of 1600mhz RAM and my second PCI-E slot is capable of 8x, so no real bottleneck in my case.

The card is pretty economical, the fan adjusts to the load as does power consumption. For reference my idle temp hovers at 30º and hits 68º after a long grind on Unigine Heaven's DX11 mode. Would imagine these to be lower in a larger case with greater airflow options.

Not in this case. CPU would be the only defining factor and it doesn't matter as much as you think. Especially for people running higher resolutions. Memory doesnt really impact at all, apart from loading times. All mobos run 16x at this stage. You only need the high end mobos with all the power phases and dangly bits if you want to oc the heck out of it. You have benchmarks like 3dmark telling you the £300 you just spent on memory was totally worth it cos I gotz 100 more points... In gaming GPU is the be all and end all factor, so get the best one you can for the money. BTW Porsche is like Nvidia brand image over value, also mini is no slouch in the image stakes. And the Nissan GTR will smoke the Porsche and can be had for a fraction of the price.
#31
cracking price for a decent bit of kit, just a shame that powercolor have possibly one of the worst rma processes that you can find. if it was any other manufactuer i'd be tempted, but as its powercolour i'll wait and see how other manufacturers respond to this price drop. hopefull this should push the price of some of the 5770's down as well in the not to distant future
#32
cancelled my order with amazon in end cant be bothered to wait anymore, I figure under soga rights and credit cardprotection I should be covered either way through the retailer in the event it dies on me.
#33
Does anyone know how this card would stack up against a Radeon 4870 Dark Knight 512MB? Had this card for a year and I'm wondering if there's any point in upgrading yet.
#34
Wow, this is a great price, double the ROPS (less taxing AA implementation) of a 5830 for a cheaper price is an absolute bargain.

I'm hoping Nvidia's launch will push this down slightly further towards the end of the month though

Oh dear..... do some people think that every comment posted here is just personal opinion, or do they ever stop to think about whether there might be some hard facts, or perhaps some professional & industry accepted knowledge before they blurt out something just for the sake of it…..???
#36
Any one know if this comes with the crossfire bridge? Is two needed?

While Im at it, would ebuyer deal with the RMA process? If the RMA process for powerColor is poor, I wouldn't care if dabs dealt with the issue.
#37
nice price there website sucks big time no info on size looks alot smaller than 5870 throhttp://media.bestofmicro.com/W/N/225383/original/Radeon%20HD%205870%205850.jpg

Mine came with the crossfire bridge, though it was an XFX branded card.
Would be surprised if it's not included as it's clearly a cheap little thing.

Brought one of their 4850 back a year ago, the card had problems which i ask for RMA but turn out that never responded my email. Not gonna vote since the price is hot but service poor

Would ebuyer not deal with this issue on your behalf (if you had bought it from ebuyer)? I have no experience with ebuyer, would expect that they would deal with any RMA requests???
