Beneath its blood-red exterior beats the heart of a true warrior. The XFX Radeon HD 4830 features advanced multimedia capabilities, PowerPlay for energy savings, UVD2 for H.264 decoding and 7.1 audio output over HDMI. A single 6-pin power cable powers you up to full performance and two Crossfire connectors allow up to four cards in a CrossfireX setup.

Features
- ATI Radeon HD 4830 GPU @ 575MHz
- 512MB GDDR3 Memory @ 1800MHz
- 24x custom filter anti-aliasing (CFAA) and high performance anisotropic filtering
- PCI Express 2.0 support
- 256-bit GDDR3 memory interface
- ATI CrossFireX Multi-GPU Technology
- Microsoft DirectX 10.1 support
- Shader Model 4.1
- ATI Avivo HD video and display technology
- Unified Video Decoder 2 (UVD) for Blu-ray and HD Video
- Built-in HDMI with 5.1 surround sound support
- On-chip HDCP
- XFX Uprated cooling system, upto 20c cooler than stock cooler making it ideal for overclocking

This is a great card for the money with excellent cooler. Can easily be overclocked to 4850 performance. Cant see it cheaper elsewhere. I know new cards are (apparently) due soon but I still think this is good value for money.

Quidco available

Excellent price for an HD4830 with a dual slot cooler which actually vents hot air out of the case.

Most HD4830 cards can be overclocked to 650mhz+ for the core and may even reach 700mhz!! This makes the HD4830 very close to an HD4850 in performance!! Even at stock speeds it is at most around 10% to 20% slower than an HD4850:

It is also faster than 8800GT/9800GT.

Hot deal indeed.

Just bear in mind that soon, ATI's gonna release their 40nm part to replace the 4830. They'll be called the 4750 and 4770. I think the 4830's gonna come down in price a lot in the coming weeks as retailers get rid of their 4830 stock.
#3
I think this is evidence of the price drops and Novatech have gone early. This card is still over £100 in most places. Is an excellent card. Went for it over an 8800GT as benchamrks were better and it was going in a blu-ray media centre so having on-board lossless sound was a major plus.

I currently have a 256mb x1950 pro in main pc, would this card make a marked improvement in games or would I be better spending a bit more and getting a better one?
#5
Would make a significant difference

In this chart the 4830 is 4 tiers above your card. Just make sure your PSU can handle it

I would wait tho. In April, ATI's gonna release the 4890 so you'll be seeing more price drops on the 4850 and 4870. You'll probably be able to pick up a 4850 for the same price next month. I'm sure you'll be able to last a few more weeks with your card. :)
#7
Think my psu would handle it, it's a 750 watt

Cheers guys, I'll hang on for a few weeks
#8
Hmmmm....i wouldn't buy a 512 mb 8800 at that price. Too much buck for too little bang.
#9
Ah I wish the power consumption was lower on this, looks like I'll have to go for the 4670. Great price though.

Current PSU too small? What are you running?

good luck with finding proper drivers

300w at the moment.

300w at the moment.
What brand is it may I ask? If it's a Dell PC (& assuming it has the right connectors/connectors free), it most probably will be sufficient as their PSUs are underrated.

If not, I can offer you a Hiper 425W PSU with a dedicated 6pin connector for £20 + postage (~£3). It's only a few months old, lightly used & it has powered a 8800GT 512Mb card for a few days with no hassle at all. It's very quiet too. Let me know if interested & I'll start a new FS thread.

It's an Asus v2-p5g33 barebones system, so whatever came with that (I'm at work at the moment so can't check it).

Thanks for the offer but I'll leave it for now, I only built the machine 2 weeks ago and don't want to start adding extra cost to it (apart from a new graphics card). I've built it deliberately to use little power so upgrading the PSU isn't something I'm keen on doing at the moment anyway.

A good deal :) Very tempting!

Upgrading the PSU would make it draw less power, not more. PSUs only supply the power they're asked to supply by the system, so a generic 1000W PSU won't consume and more power than a generic 300W PSU. Efficiency governs how much power a system draws, the higher the Efficiency rating the less electricity the system will waste. Basically, if a PSU had a Efficiency rating of 70% then in order to power a 200W system it would need to draw 285W from the mains. A PSU with an Efficiency rating of 90% on the other hand would draw just 222W.

More expensive PSU tend to be more power efficient. The wattage rating has no baring on power consumption (other than obviously increasing the amount you could potentially use if the circumstances demanded it).

Thanks for that, very helpful info. :thumbsup: Repped
Oops! I knackered the quote somehow.

OK, thanks for letting me know.

satchef1, you took the words right out of my mouth :thumbsup: (rep from me too).

not if you are using Windows. If you don't, bad luck, drivers are available but do not work.
