after much concideration and research i have narrowed it down to two cards:
Msi 6850 Cyclone
Msi 460 Cyclone

6850
its slightly more expensive for the card but not by much and should i want to in the future i can run two of these without needing to upgrade my psu

460
slightly cheaper and i prefer the nvidea control panel but i would need a new psu if i want to sli it at a later date!

Both cards seem to give about the same fps and will more than cover my current requirements for graphics!

unless someone can sway me one way or the other im gonna flip a coin when it comes to order day so what do you think?
Both perform almost the same, both overclock about the same and give the same performance in the end and both are cool and quiet though the 6850 uses less power and scales better (2 of them).

Its really whichever you prefer in the end.

Yeah its the lower power consumption that leans me towards the 6850 but is it worth dealing with the ccc and limited physx support?
