From another thread i saw earlier :

I now have my 5830 running at 985Mhz, 307Mh/s, 50% fan speed, 70C temp

at ~$100 that's really good bang

mem clock?

300Mhz. I now have the card running at 60C in the basement.

interesting..my xfx with 975/340 wont hit 300, its doing 288 (-v -w128 -f0)

is -f0 actually better than -f1? I haven't tried it yet but -f0 doesn't make any sense.

I thought the same as well, for some reason, it works well on my machine.

So, I've got the option of buying a:
6870 for about $220,
5850 for about $250,
5870 for about $360.

According to this:

the 5870 is the best and by far the most cost effective. But is it worth the extra $110 per card?
820MH/s is way better than 628. What say yee?

6950..around 250$.find one that unlocks..clock it at 970mhz..hashrate: 415 mhash

I bought an unlocked Sapphire 6950 1GB card for $175CDN about 2 weeks ago....
I've been able to run it run to 1000/1325 hitting about 428Mhash with a I7 920 @ 2.6
but have been running it at 800/1250 for a hashrate ~340Mhash and I7 920 @ 2.6

but when the I7 is overclocked to 3.8 I can hit ~360Mhash at stock speeds...

I think that is a steal..... Grin

My advice, don't buy any of those. Those are awful awful prices. Unless you live in the UK and you're converting GBP to USD. If you live in the US just pop over to newegg.com and buy some 5830s, $109.99

I can attest that 5830's seem to BEG you to overclock them.  A little RBE work and I've pushed mine as high as 320 Mhash/s stable.

I agree that the 5830 are awesome.  I was going to get a couple 5850 but couldn't find any, then newegg had their sale on 5830...

Hard to beat 300+MH for $100-110.

Wow, that is a good price/ option. I only have two PCIe slots though, that's the down side. Granted, with the $400 saved, I could probably build a second miner Tongue

Jeeze, 2 5830's = $260, rather than 2 5850's $484

seems like the 5830 is on par with the 5850 in mh/s anyway...

It is not, 250 vs 300mhs is disappointing.

Someone said they were hitting 300mhs with the 5830

is the perforamnce of the 5970 correct? It would put it right into the sweet sport in performance and wattage and price. Thinking of getting a 6990 and the 5970 mhs is shocking me here. Seems wrong.
