I think the 5850 has more overclocking headroom. A lot of people can hit 5870+ performance. The 6870 has better tessellation and has better crossfire scaling.

I've got my MSI twin frozr II 5850 at 1050core/1175mem at 1.275v. Very stable, temps never over 65 in gaming or 72ish after hours of stress testing. Very nice card for overclocking, 3 year warranty on this card too

Ive hit the same clock wall as the 5850's on stock volts, ive tried to juice it up in software to no avail. Still gathering potientiometers and trying to see what she can do.
