The GTX 460 Hawk competes really well with the AMD 6870 TFII. I had the MSI AMD 6870 TFII and I was getting slightly better benching against another OCN member here competing with the GTX 460 Hawk.

If your wanting to stick with AMD and you can make the AMD 6870 work within your budget I'd go for that over the 6850. You won't regret it.

Later down the road next year or so you can crossfire it with your 700 watt psu. Prices on it will drop nicely I'm guessing. I ended up with a second for a short time and it was playing games maxed for me full AA on my one 60hz 1920x1080p monitor I had at the time back in December.
