    Default Sapphire Radeon HD5830 1GB

    Between ATI's Radeon HD5850 and HD5770 is a gap in terms of performance and price in their lineup. Looking to close that gap is the Radeon HD5830. Sounds pretty simple, but there is a catch. The catch here is the 5830 isn't a new card, not at least in the traditional sense. Instead, ATI has recycled a piece of their current lineup in order to fill the need, and the 5830 is essentially a neutered 5870 that couldn't pass strict binning criteria. Sapphire has taken the 5830, installed a heatsink with some heatpipes, slapped on a Modern Warfare 2 sticker, and tossed in a free copy of the game. Let's take the Sapphire Radeon 5830 1GB for a spin and see how it stacks up against the competition.

    This card costs way too much. $260 is not worth it.

    Yea, Logan

    If you shop around you can find a nice GTX285 for say 190.00 maybe.

    I could see maybe $189 but that's it. Kip. the GTX285s are starting to get hard to find, try finding one on Newegg.

    That on top of the fact that finding GTX 275s are just as hard. Even Newegg only has 4 different GTX 260s in stock as of this post. I think in general finding ANY GTX cards at a good price is tough.
