A Closer Look

Compact would be the word that springs to mind. The main box is dominated by the Modern Warfare 2 logo which is a curious choice. If anything is likely to sell a £210+ graphics card it's unlikely to be the thought of Modern Warfare 2, a game most people will have played a thousand times already.

Perhaps if you're torn between two models the thought of a free game will do the business.

Opening it up we find the standard adaptor cables as well as a nicely laid out manual and CD combination that makes a lovely change from the normal paper wallet that driver CDs come in.

Finally we get to the HIS 5830 Turbo. No-one will be in any doubt that this is an HIS product, nor that this is the Modern Warfare 2 variant.

It's nice to see a full-card non-reference cooler. Anything that helps exhaust the heat out the back of our case is always welcome.

On the rear we have the near-standard Radeon 5 series ports of HDMI, DisplayPort and DVI-D.

I agree 100% with OC3D here. The 5850 would be a better buy.Quote

Too expensive still.

If it was between to 5770 and 5850 it would be a great buy.Quote
