If all you can afford is a 5830, then go with what you can afford. Simple as that.

At this point if he has the 230 to get a new 5830 I say go for it.

The 4XXX and G2XX series are non-DX11 cards. Its best to move forward not backward, and new card means full warranty for sure.

Best bet in this situation.
