Hi guys....

i have a sapphire HD 5830 and im using a axle 500W psu

i want to sell my 5830 and get a used graphic card

my friend has a Evga 9800 GX2

My question is

Is it worth selling the 5830 and getting the 9800 GX2?

If yes will the 500W psu support the 9800 gx2?
A mid-range card from early 2010 vs a high end card from two years earlier...
Suspect if you did it would be no difference or a small downgrade in performance.

A low-end modern card will be the best option I think, something like a 7750 would floor both of them.
