5850 is faster than 6850. If the price is the same, take that.

Well if you plan on crossfiring it in the future... recommend the 6850...they scale better than the 5800 series... but if you dont plan on crossfiring..then get the 5850, since it is stronger...

Oh btw...some of the newer games have a dx11 requiment for cards...in dragonage II the requirement is 5850 card or higher for the ATI/AMD side...

5850 is theoretically 20% faster. Its up to you to choose the option that will suit you best.
HD6xxx cross-fires better than HD5xxx, but if you don't think of CFing, this doesn't matter.

If HD6xxx is cheaper, I'd get that and leave the option for CF instead of upgrade in the future 5 years.

But the best advice I can give you - don't let the numbers affect your choice too much - take the card that you like, and you won't come to regret the choice

Cheers

Its a "cheap" PSU, but will probably be ok. As with many cheap PSU's a slightly higher risk of components inside failing. But still a lot better chance it will last for years with no problems. I would say buying a cheap PSU over a well trusted one is about the difference of going out for the day without an umbrella in 20% chance of rain, (cheap psu), and 10% chance, (trusted brand). Probably ok either way but you never know?

PS. When is the last time anyone has seen an umbrella?
