So you have been shopping around for your first DX11 videocard and want an option that isn't too expensive, but it more powerful than a mainstream product. The Radeon HD 5830 fits nicely in a void left between the HD 5770 and the HD 5850 and could be the faster option that will be the sweet spot for most power user's to consider.
For one, the HD 5830's price falls well below the US$300 threshold at around US$252, yet has the performance potential to be a very potent gamer for most users. With 52Gb/sec more peak memory bandwidth and 320 more shaper pipelines than the HD5770, will the price match the performance or will you ever see the difference between this card and a mainstream alternative for much less money. But to add more fuel to the fire, Sapphire has added a free full version copy of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare to get you up and gaming immediately. With one purchase you get the card, and the game but will this package impress or fail.
