Summary: I bought this for dedicated Bitcoin mining. It's been reliable, stable and overclocked for three continuous months. I can't say anything about it's gaming ability, but it's hash-rate for me hovers around 300MH's/s.
Summary: At the time of this review it still beats 90% of high end cards which is why I'm writing this review to show that this is a solid card which is my best buy ever for my gaming rig. I OC my CPU, RAM, and everything I touch - this card has extremely low temps and runs super fast, what else can you ask for? If you look at my other reviews, this is by far my longest only because it's the best product I've bought in years.. most are good but not amazing.
Summary: i must say this is a great card for this price i got it because it was the cheapest hd 5830 at the time. i am very pleased with it so far it runs very quietly and its performance is very good for the price. Ive had it for 4 months now without a single problem from this thing. if you're looking for a great card for around 200 bucks this is the card for you!
Summary: I bought StarCraft II but needed a better graphics card to be able to crank up the settings in the game to get the detail that I wanted. I was very pleased with the results. I cranked everything up to Ultra in the game and it still runs very smoothly, even during epic battles with lots of units moving around. My desktop is right now hooked up via HDMI to my 5.1 surround home theater system with 47" LCD TV.
