5 out of 5 eggsMSI HD5830

Pros: This is my second high end ATI card,my previous being a xt850 PCIE 256m Radeon.Like the xt850 this card is rock solid,and FAST.I have had zero issues in over a year's worth of moderate to heavy use.I play dx10 games such as BioShock and Skyrim ,MafiaII etc.. and I run all my games on high settings with no problems.Excellent graphics quality and decent (30-40fps)performance.

Cons: Freakin huge! This has got be the largest card I have ever stuffed into a Mid-Tower ATX case,with nabsolutely no room to spare.I had to rearrange my HD's to make a hole for this beast as it long enough it reaches all the way across the case and encroaches on drive bays.Its also a two slot configuration,so its tall AND long.With two fans its also a power hog,you have to use the power plug in from the PS or it will not function properly,period.

2 out of 5 eggsFailed Ever since i put in in

Pros: I have had this card 9 months. It works for about 2-3 Hours then it becomes unusable. I looks like its eating the monitors away. It doesn't go blank, but it all the pixals become off. I didn't over-clock, and i ran all the defaults. I hooked it to a small HDMI TV and a DVI Monitor. It flickers when I start a movie, dvd or other.

Cons: Bad Card, It probably a Manufacturing Error, I've used MSI in the past and they are great cards

Other Thoughts: I wish i could post a Picture to Show you what it does after a couple hours. In the video review, i just bearly turned it on.

5 out of 5 eggsI wish I could find this card

Pros: this thing is amazing

Cons: I can't buy another one anywhere. Sure would be nice to run two of these cards in crossfire.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat, If on sale.

Pros: -Overclocks nice.
You can OC this card and adjust the voltage! You have to change a few 0's to 1's in the Afterburner CFG file. I'm no Hacker and I did it in about 5 mins.

-looks killer
No silly girl with ghostbusters goggles and a 8 foot sword on the side. Just an all business cooler with twin fans.

-Runs cool
Mine is idle at 33C right now.

Cons: -price
If you get is on sale, great. If the 5850 is on sale by that one.

WORK THE COMBO DEALS HARD. Be a little flexible on your items and see what combos are attached. Try different combinations. I saved over 100 bucks on my budget system with combos, and rebates.

1 out of 5 eggsDo not expect the rebate

Pros: If you expect a rebate to come, do not buy from MSI. They will reject your rebate guaranteed. They will reject you for "Not the end user" which is a laugh. This happened for both me and a friend of mine who bought MSI cards the same day at newegg. Avoid MSI if you expect a rebate.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Card

Pros: Works perfect..in fact better than what I expected..upgraded from a 4890 to this..I can see quite a few improvements and more fps in most games..runs MUCH cooler than my 4890 did...40C idle temp..55C max load temp so far in Crysis at 1920x1080..

Cons: Rebate was just too much a hassle to bother with..
might be a con for some but had to remove the HDD caddy in my HAF 912 for it to fit..

Other Thoughts: Works great..price was right..excellent low noise cooling setup..

4 out of 5 eggsMSI 5830

Pros: Higher framerates, runs considerably cooler than my old 4870. Good value.!!!!!!
My biggest pro is buying from Newegg!!!! they RMA'd a previous card and sent the replacement out very quickly.
I have quit buying from anyone else, have for a while now.

Cons: The fans are definately noticeable on anything above 65%.

5 out of 5 eggsUNREAL!!!

Coming Soon!

Pros: I've been out of the desktop computer world for a few years and remember 3d games as blocky and lacking photorealism... This just blows me away!!! I ran Dirt 2 flawlessly, Crysis flawlessly, and at 1920x1080 while not even going above 60c. I'm soooo happy I got this vs the 5770 Hawk I was first planning on.

Cons: None... simply amazing!
