How do you work that out good sir ?

5 Heatpipes vs. 3 from the stock model
80mm fan quiet fan vs. Leaf blower

While i believe that the stock cooler looks a lot nicer, the thing is so over engineered (like most reference coolers tend to be) that it isn't as effective as it should be.

I think the mounting holes for 48xx and 58xx (and thus these) were similar but i'm not sure.. Although most 6850 cards are non-reference and have pretty good coolers on them.

Just gotta wait for a non-reference Palit or Sapphire card. Whew, the 6850 looks like it'll blow the 4850 out of the water.

3DMark06 isn't exactly a good measure of graphics power since Vantage is better. And it's quite a bit faster than a 5770. Infact the 6870 is sometimes equal/faster than the 5870.

Vapor-X would be cool, and ASUS would also make non-reference cards, along with most others like Gigabyte. Also, Palit don't make Radeon cards anymore, they have gone NVIDIA-only it seems, shame really, since Palit/Gainward made some amazing ATI cards.

The 5870 is better in most cases, but the 6870 should be equal to it's performance or even surpass it with future driver updates. It also scales better in CrossFire, and uses less power (even though that's not much of an issue with 5xxx/6xxx cards). It's also cheaper it seems so it would be better to go with the 6870 instead, at least what i think
