What is so great about them, how are they better than the more pricey and newer cards?

Thanks!

they are great in terms of MH/$.  When they were selling for $100 they were 3MH/$, compared to something like the 6990 that is closer to 1-2MH/$. 

Pretty hard to beat

Any of the 5000 series cards are good for MH/s/$ anyways...especially when you factor in how much you will make back.

My current 5850 is 2.33MH/s/%

also consider the power cost of the cards, heat generated and fan noise.  the 5830 supposedly can pull 200+ watts each  the 6870 cards can easily hit 280Mh without underclocking mem, cost about 180 bucks and use about 160w (with stock memory/core clocks).  if you space them apart a bit they only run at 70º when overclocked to 975 and the fans at 60%

if you only have a few cards in a machine it wont make much of a difference but if you have 4+ cards on a motherboard it starts to add up (more wattage every day, more expensive power supplies, more heat, more fan noise/ more power to the fans, etc)

Please show me where you got that data from.
