Post HD 5750 vs 5770 vs 5830

Recently I've been wanting to upgrade my video card as well as a bunch of other components (not important here). I've been looking at some budget cards, mainly the 5750, 5770 and 5830, but can't really make up my mind about which one to choose. Obviously the 5830 offers the best performance, but I'm not sure if I need the 256-bit memory interface at a resolution of 1680x1050. Will the 5750 last me at least a year before it becomes too outdated to play the latest games, will the 5770 -being the card in the middle- be the most flexible, or does the 5830 which has a higher clock speed than the 5850, offer the best price over performance?? Remember, I only game at 1680x1050 because I use a 20" LCD monitor, so please help me decide which video card has the best value, and after that, which manufacturer I hsould buy from and why. Thanks!

XFX 5770.

With some overclocking, the 5770 will reach the speeds of a 5830.

IMO the 5670 is great for occasional gaming or older games, 5750 is a great step up if you are on a strict budget, 5770 is perfect for gaming at your resolution (though the most demanding games may have to have some settings turned down), and 5830 is not worth the extra cost over the 5770 (only a few % increase in performance). If you have to have a card that is faster than a 5770 save for a 5850.

The 5830 isn't worth the price tag, imho. It's a toss up between the 5750/5770. The variables are aa/af and high/med settings in game that's what'll make or break whether your happy with a card or not.

Ps, I'd also suggest saving for a 5850 $280-300+tax(maybe price will go down), then you'd be good for a while.

A used HD4890? Still a solid card IMO, only DX10.1 though if you can live with that.

Not like DX11 is a must, especially with a mid-range card.

My only reason for choosing the 5830 is Dx11 and if you have to buy a new card, why not get one to last a while. Save a bit more and get the 5850, probably the best bet imho. If this is too much then the 5770 from XFX is my next suggestion.

Now how about for those of us who aren't technically saving for a card but would rather pick a card that will be a healthy card for the next run of games? I have in mind games like Fable 3, Diablo 3, Bad Company 2 etc.

I have a 19" monitor that I see no need to upgrade but at which time I do decide I would also like to know it can handle 1900x1080+ resolutions.

Am I just leading myself towards the 58XX series? Or is there still room for the 5770 considering my low res and future game aspirations?

I would definitely get a 5770 for that res. Is it 1680 X 1050 res?

1080 --> you'll want a 5850. the 5770 can do must of the games but with the settings turned down if it doesn't matter to you
