This lower-midrange card gets overlooked a fair bit.
It's essentially a HD 6850 with a few bits disabled - but with higher stock GPU and memory clock speeds, and it's also a pretty good overclocker, with people hitting up to 950Mhz GPU and 5000Mhz mem on stock voltage.

From what I can tell, this is the cheapest price around. But if someone finds it cheaper feel free to post it here (preferrable before I buy one :-P ).

Probably the best bang for buck card, great for those on a tighter budget.

Also, forgot to add that it doesn't require a huge amount of power, with a 400w PSU being enough for it to happily chug away without problems in a regular desktop setup.

Clicky clicky for reviews -

I noticed the 5830 slightly ahead of this card in the reviews and went looking for a very cheap one, even looked at the Scan today only page.
How the hell did I miss it, lol!
The only negative is it's XFX, and their euro support is, well, not very supportive :|.
