if you have a sempron, no games would run well, so the CPU would be a "bottleneck" Think a neck of the bottle, which limits the amount of fluid the goes through.

I find i5 2500K systems to be cheap for what they are Smiley

also



99.99$, GREAT price

RAGEEEEEEE

I just bought three of those for $30 more than I needed to!

I guess they'll be here two days earlier than if I had ordered them now though... 2 days of mining @ 800MH/s = 5.67 BTC = $36.87.  So I guess I'm ok.  Tongue

Worth pointing out:  The 5830 uses like 40 watts more power than the 5850
Seriously?  Why?  That's so lame...
25% more frequency, 50% less shaders/processors==more power consumption and less performance in both OpenCL/OpenGL and Direct3D workload.

don't worry Smiley
you GPU invested not wasted.
before GPU mining era was start, im use my AMD GPU in number of GPGPU appz to process images for example.
also number of [really-nice]3D-renderers with GPGPU support exist.
also GRID teams seriously consider adding OpenCL support and same about Linux guys -)

How cheap would you have to find a 5970 for it to be worth it to purchase vs multiple cheaper cards?  I keep seeing people saying they can find them for 400 used, but I haven't had that kind of luck...
