I was browsing through Newegg's store and noticed that they just dropped the price on all their Radeon HD 6850 1gb 256bit GPU's making them the same price as a HD 7770 1gb 128bit. So whether you're looking to upgrade that aging dx9 / 10 GPU or looking for a GPU for a budget build, you can get a 6850 that overclocks very well for less than $150

Sapphire Radeon HD 6850 1gb 256bit GDDR5 $134.99 + Free Shipping + $15 MIR = $119.99 (Customer Choice Award)

XFX Double D HD 6850 1gb 256bit GDDR5 $139.99 + Free Shipping + $20.00 MIR = $119.99

XFX Radeon HD 6850 1gb 256bit GDDR5 $139.99 + $7.87 Shipping + $15.00 MIR = $132.86

It appears that AMD has pulled the plug on these cards as all other Manufacturers have discontinued the 6850 model. Sad too because the 6850 Overclocks to the point where it beats a stock 6870 for $45 less.
