i'm looking to upgrade my graphics card, i currently have a pretty poor Radeon HD2400, and have found the following 3 which seem good, and are in my price range:
http://www.pixmania.co.uk/uk/uk/4904516/art/sapphire-technology/radeon-hd-5770-vapor-x-1.html

http://www.pixmania.co.uk/uk/uk/5310295/art/sapphire-technology/radeon-hd-4890-1-gb-ddr5.html

http://www.pixmania.co.uk/uk/uk/5020944/art/pixmania/radeon-hd-5830-1-gb-gddr5.html

i dont know too much about them but it seems to be between the HD 5770 vapor-x and the HD 5830.
can anyone suggest which is best to go for, for gaming. and why if possible?

thanks a lot!

cool thanks for the link. im pretty sure i have 450W, though its quality is probably questionable, might be worth upgrading it anyway.

so the 5830 would be the one to go for?

For performance, yes. The equivalent NVidia cards for performance would be the 9800GX2 or GTX 260 and higher if you are curious.

awesome cheers, i'll probably go for theATI, i'v had trouble with an nvidia card not working straight out of the box in the past, but its pretty likely that was just my fault, i had no idea how to properly change over from ATI to nvidia.

what would be an advantage to nvidia, if any?

None really, they are an older generation card actually supporting only DX10 while the ATI cards are the newest generation and support DX11
