GIGABYTE Radeon HD 5830 1GB Video Card - Total Value Rating (TVR)

GIGABYTE sends over a HD 5830 which looks the goods with a mean looking cooling fan. We look at it today on our new test setup.

Total Value Rating

 

The TVR graph is the TPR score divided by the price of the video card. The price of the video card is based on the list price of the model on Newegg.com. In the event the card isn't listed, it will be based on the U.S. $ MSRP given to us by the manufacturer.

 

In the event we can't source a price from either, the product will not receive a TVR rating. As with our TPR graph, the amount of video cards on the list will grow over time and the price of the model won't change from what it was when first reviewed. For this reason the U.S. $ price that the card is based off will be included next to the name of the model.

 

In the event you want to find the TVR rating yourself based on the current price, all you have to do is simply divide the TPR number by the list price.

 

TVR numbers are rounded to the nearest whole number; 100.3 will be 100; 100.8 will be 101 and 100.5 will be rounded down to 100.

This variant of GIGABYTE's HD 5830 with its supped up aftermarket cooler can be had for $249.99 from NewEgg right now. While some may argue the value of the card isn't all that great, our TVR graph tells a different story with it being the best valued card we've tested so far.
