Default Upgrading Graphics!

Hello Tech-Forum, Today I am looking for a nice upgrade to my current Video card: Newegg.com - HIS H483FN512P Radeon HD 4830 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

I need something in the range of 100-110$

Thanks!

If you want to stay on the ATI line, get this: Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100283-3L Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

I actually just seen this. Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100297L Radeon HD 5830 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card w/ ATI Eyefinity Technology
Would it be a better buy?

Would the 5830 which is 10$ cheaper be a better buy?

Well, after mail-in rebate, the 5770 is cheaper, but that requires a little more effort, and does the better performance look worth it to you?

I see that now, I am just gonna go for the 5830 and hopefully OC the core clock to 875. That is what most users get out of it

Thanks for help
