That gpu would probably get you a score between 4000 - 4500 in low res.

The 5830 you have listed would definatly run the benchmark well. I went from a 9500gt, which scored a whopping 861, to a HD 5770, which scored a 4352. The 5770 I have is only a 128bit and I would bet that a 256 would push you over 5000 on the benchmark. If you go with that, please pm me your results ^^
