Not a bad deal there, but you could always get a 3870 and crossfire that with your 3850. Then if you wanna upgrade later you can sell the 3850 and buy another 3870.

Get a 3870. AoC doesent utilize multiple GPUs wery good.
With the 3870 you have a card that can run AoC on high withot having multiple cards. And as the one over me said. You can always CF your 3850 with a 3870
