Great for mining
Faster than HD 6850 and GTX 460
Overclocks well
No rebate!
Doesn't scale as well in CrossFire as HD 6000 series
Despite being an older card, it gives a pretty good bang for your buck. It's faster than the HD 6850 and GTX 460, cheaper than both (at the time I bought it) and I didn't have a stupid mail-in rebate to mess with. It also overclocks well, from 725 Mhz to 950 Mhz on stock voltage (the voltage can't be adjusted). OC'ed, it's a terrific miner, generating ~380 Mh/s.

The stock cooler is average. It has heatpipes but just a single fan blowing down on it so the hot air comes out on both sides. If you want something quiet, you'll need aftermarket cooling. The accessories include a DVI->VGA adapter and 2 PCI-E power adapters.

Experience: 2 Days


It arrived before I expected, and I am quite pleased with this card. The pricing was fantastic, and I cannot wait to start a replay of Crisis 2 with this.
None. Still the best bang-for-your-buck card.
Sapphire is one of the most renowned distributors of these ATI cards, and hard-core gamers, enthusiasts, or casual players considered this the holy grail for some time.

Experience: 1 Months


Quiet, Fast
A few errors which can be blamed on my aging computer
This is a great card especially for the price. It runs quietly on my computer, but not cool because one of my other cards are blocking the fan. In addition, the card seems to cause my computer to POST repeatedly, but I blame that on the motherboard. It plays games at high settings well.

Experience: 1 Months


-Most performance for your dollar.
-Overclocks to 5870 speeds with no extra voltage.
-DirectX 11 and 1440 Stream processors
-Morphological AA support
-Idle and load temperatures low while remaining quiet
-Only that stock seems to be drying up pretty quickly
Around $135 this card offers some serious bang for your buck. It comes in above the GTX 460 1GB and 6850, roughly on par with the 6870 except in heavily tessellated games.

1080p performance is top notch, and anti aliasing barely takes an FPS hit in most games. Full DX11 and Morphological AA support is available.

Experience: 1 Weeks


price to performance ratio
only one DVI port
techgage review says it all: best offering in the price range, beating out more expensive 6850s. handles new games on high, cool and quiet.

Comment: "For only $20 more than the 5830, you get considerable gaming power that rivals a Radeon 6870, but comes with a smaller card design, impressively low temperatures, and far better pricing."
