The last of the Turbo HD 5800 series is looked at from HIS. This time it's the more budget focused HD 5830.

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.

At $279.99 over at Newegg it's the most expensive HD 5830 we've tested. For that reason you can see the overall value has dropped a little. You have to remember, though, that this value rating is only based on performance. The fact that HIS also includes a copy of Modern Warfare 2 adds a good amount of value to the product.
