I don't really understand what you're saying..

But yeah, you definitely should sell those 6850s and buy 6950s.

I think the pricing is fine, what do you expect when your purchasing a limited produced video card.

Its price seems kind of fair due to the price of the AMD Radeon HD 6970. They just doubled the price of a 6970 but I would just unclock 2 6950's and CF them for some great performance. On a news thread with benchmarks, it was as good as 2xGTX570 and close to 2xGTX580.

EDIT: Herp derp $700. So it is a little pricey. Still cheaper than the $800 8800 Ultra though.
The 5970 hovered in the $700 range for most of its shelf life.
