well the HD 5830 is somewhat better than the HD 5770 but honestly with its performance i'd call it the HD 5790...its only 6% faster on avg at 1680x1050-1920x1200 according to tpu's review. The biggest margin is 13% at 2560x1600, but i dout anyone with big a monitor is going to run a HD 5830. If the DH 5830 had had like 24ROP's or so then i think it would be much much better, but ATI severely crippled it with only 16ROP's like the HD 57XX series.
OT: if this card was oc'd at like 950/1300 i think it'd be gold, but i supposed we'll see how it overclocks, hopefully that longer PCB isn't there for nothing.
