In case anyone was wondering, the HD 5830 is roughly comparable to the HD 5770 model.

Comparable, but faster than 5770.

On passmark the scores are;
5830: 2077
5770: 1647
Fair bit of difference in performance.

Is this worth upgrading from a geforce 275gtx?

It would be a slight upgrade...

peeps, what is the most bang for the buck card available now pretty please? I am waiting for the bulldozer to drop before building my new pc, but if this card is worth it, i might buy one.

Yeah somebody on the last thread about the 5830 said the exact same thing and i said they where talking ****, the 5830 is significantly faster than the 5770 the 5770 is there budget card and has always been around the £100 mark where as the 5830 hasn't been, when the 5830 came out it was around the £180 mark and is head and shoulders faster than the 5770 as those passmark scores show the 5830 sits between the 5770 and the 5850 but is closer to the 5850 than the 5770. So for **** sake don't keep saying that its as fast as the 5830 its not.


I thought i would post this for those that think the 5830 is like a 5770, take special notice of the memory bus width as its twisce the size on the 5830 and remeber this XfX is a pre overclocked card.

Currently the ATI 6950 is the arguably most powerful 'Great value' card.

It has very high specs and costs just over £200 and can be flashed to a 6970 spec. A simular spec Nvidia card costs over £50 more.

Keep in mine the minimum power supply needed also :)

Price, hot.

Why is it so much cheaper than the others?!
#14
Handy web page for comparing cards (unfortunately, cards are separated by year 2010 or 2011):-

http://www.anandtech.com/bench/GPU/88

Any card for playing games for around £120 should be compared to the GTX 460 and at around £190 the GTX 560 Ti.
#15
for the uneducated, is this a good deal then? help!

I generally use this guide to compare equivelant graphics cards.

My guide says no, they are of comparative performance. The 5830 has neglible benefits like DX11 & eyefinity support, but the FPS of most games will be identical.


As for comparisons with the 5770. Yes this is faster but again it's negligible. In the same category as those cards are the 4870 and the 4890. The 4890 is the faster card and was at one time the fastest card, but the performance gaps to faster cards are much greater now so they have been bundled together to show they offer similar performance levels compared to the newer, faster GPUs.

I'd say an unequivocal 'YES'. Cards of a similar performace (GTX460 768MB) are around £100 at the cheapest I've seen them. So this gives the same bang for less buck, voted hot from me.
#18
Its looks like a massive card however so check that it fits!

Excellent price. Pricing up a PC for work, and was content to get the 5670 paired with the 6 core phenom with fairly decent psu (my excuse to my boss is I use photoshop, but really I want to play my collection of Steam games 8) For £84 it would be rude not to buy this!

I know that the power supply states 500w but i am likely to be able to run it on the following supply which is 400w or is it just a total no no.

Novatech PowerStation Gaming 400W Silent ATX2 Modular Power Supply
AC Input 200-260V ~ 3A 50/60Hz
DC Output +3.3V +5V +12V1 +12V2 -12V +5Vsb
Max Load 24A 20A 18A 18A 0.3A 2.5A
Max Combined Wattage 120W 300W 3.6W 12.5W
Total Power 400W

How much better than a 9800GT?
#25
This is a new one which is factory overclocked to 840mhz, other 5830s are 800mhz. Heres a review of this new version:

If anyone needs a comparison just head over to Hardware Compare, you can put in 2 graphics cards and it gives you a rundown of what to expect differently between the 2.

because it is no better than the radeon hd4890 which is starting to show its age with modern games.
so good price but for modern gaming its not that fast.

Depends on what CPU its paired with, a 65w dual core one should be ok, a 6 core phenom will be pushing it, probably find you'll get crap frame rates, stutters and wierd effects. Doesn't sound like a premium cpu, but a rebadged budget one that pumps out closer to 370w

With a core i7, it idles at around 170w, and at full load its 325w, doesn't leave much head room on a 400w psu.

nVidia cards generally do 2 outputs (DVI-D/HDMI). AMD cards (5xxx and 6xxx) can do Eyefinity (JFGI) which is usually 2 outputs (DVI-D/HDMI) plus a Displayport (again JFGI) output. You can also get AMD cards that have 6 Displayport outputs if you have monitors that can accommodate that, although these tend to be the high end cards because of the processing power needed.

You can also buy monitors that run over a USB port using Displaylink (totally separate from any graphics card), which should be fine for most things except games (I'm typing this on my third display, a Samsung LD220, which runs over USB).

This card supports 3 way display, eyefinity for gaming, or just for extended desktop non gaming. Although there are 4 ports, x2 DVI, x1 HDMI & x1 Display Port, you must use the disploay port for 1 of your displays, so an adapter is required unless you have a monitor with a display port.

If you are definitely never going to game, you can get the same feature on much cheaper cards.

the 4th display depends on what hardware you have already. If your motherboard has a built in VGA/DVI/HDMI port already then you can enable that and have 4 displays running, non gaming only. If you don't have a built in VGA, then you can get a low cost PCI graphics card that will add 1 or 2 further VGA/DVI ports.

Sometimes these setups aren't stable, I've had 2 way and 3 way setups that work perfectly sometimes and don't work at other times.

The very best way to get a stable setup is to get a 6 way eyefinity card, all ports are display ports though. Alternatively get a crossfire or Sli motherboard and run 2 cards. You then need to run the with sli or crossfire switched off, and with Nvidia you will get 4 DVI/HDMI ports available and with ATI/AMD Raeon you will get 6 available, 2 having to be display port.
#35
Thank you both for the advice, this gives me an idea of which way to go to get the setup I want. :)
#36
Whilst I like the idea of boosting my GFX ability in my PC, its almost helfway to buying a PS3, which my lounge would just love !
Hmmm, I'm torn here but it does seem a good price.

Will this pcie 2.1 card work on a pcie 1.1 motherboard?

was thinking of going for 6870 or 6850 as they are the best bank for buck from above diagram?? But now the prices are dropping I'll go for the 6950.

Does any1 know where I an see a table that details;

1) GPU Manufacturer,
2) UK RMA or Europe RMA or Worldwide RMA
3) lenght of warranty (1 yr, 2 yrs etc)

Don't really wanna send my GPU far away for repair. Thanks
#39
The passmark software doesn't really give that accurate results ie the best graphics cards there are the gtx 590 and the hd 6990. I think the HD 6950 is around about the best bang for buck card for around £180. Can't really help you on your actual query though! I think sapphire are pretty much the best manufacturer for ati cards but then again I've only had those :D
