no offence but now u r acting like a fanboy...
even if i were to choose being a fanboy,i would choose hd6850 simply coz its newer consumes less power and has better tesselation engine.....
please think about op's benefit and leave other things(u know what) behind.....

I am

1. In real word applications the extra tessellation performance of the 6850 doesn't give it an advantage

2. The 5850 is faster and is a better bang per buck card.

You're telling the OP to get a slower card, And I'm a fan boy? I'm the most realistic person in this thread as apart from the power the requirements the 5850 IS the better buy over the 6870, 6850 and both flavors of GTX 460's.

And if you had common sense you wouldn't of bought a GPU that's more expensive and slower then the 5800 series. Congrats to you.

just see ur sig its screaming fanboy.......
and btw comparing ati 1ghz with nvidia 800mhz is like comparing amd 4ghz to intels 3.2ghz...........
it does not work that way.....
and can u see future that u r so sure that games wont use tesselation and the hd5850 will still beat hd6850(i left gtx 460,lets concentrate on amd...i guess it will be better this way with u).........
im not trying to be rude here...i even stopped a person calling u something that u wont like....
so dont say im a fanboy or anything....

You were saying? I've got another article just like that, that shows the 460 SLI being faster than 5870 crossfire, too..

HD 5xxx series scaling SUCKED. HD 6xxx series scaling is nice, though. As time goes on, and more mainstream DX 11 cards come out, the 5xxx series would lag further and further behind.

6850 or 460? 460s have slightly more performance, slightly more overclocking performance, but also use a bit more power. It's a toss up.

I wouldn't have the AMD cards because of my experiences with my 5770 and the drivers.. ugh.. that I've dealt with in the ~15 months of owning it. My Nvidia experience, on the other hand, has been 100% pleasant.

2 can play that game : http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/N...460_SLI/1.html

Also remember that 5850 CF is faster then a 5970 due to better scaling...

Just switched from a 460 to a 6850(adding a second in a month or 2) and I don't regret it all all. I prefer the nVidia control panel, but every time I thought I got rid of the 460 stutter/hitching it showed up in something else. The 460 was easily the most problematic video card I've ever owned. Plenty of people have issues with them.

The only thing the 460 was better at(I had both a 1GB and 768 overclocked 900+, returned the 1GB because of driver crashes) was Heaven, and only by about 50-80 points or so compared to my 6850 at 950/1150. You might be able to get a 6870 for a good price if you want to deal with rebates.

Also I don't think I would buy the 5850. The 6850 pretty much matches it in the current high-end games like Crysis and Metro and I would expect that to get worse as more DX11 games come out.

Thanks for all the replies again guys. Still tossing up which way I should go, I've got until Thursday until I'll have the money anyway.

If I can really stretch the budget (or get extra work) then I'll definitely try and get my dirty paws on a 6950, but that's a bit of a long shot. Short of that I'm still confident that I'll go with the 5850 or 6870 (also slightly stretching budget).
