Solved

I wanted to buy the 5850 but i think i might change my mind?

Okay so i decided at first to get a 5850, cause of its [rice/performance, etc. But the store owner(and family friend) of a retail store is offering me a gtx 275 for $160!!!!!!!. It seems like a no-brainier, but i want opinions on this. Cause a gtx 275 for 160 is a good deal and im probably not going to be gaming much

    A GTX 275 for $160 is certainly a good deal, but you need to decide whether you will upgrade to DX11 tech in less than 2 years, 2012 is when it will start to really matter.

    The 5850 is a good deal faster, but for about twice the price. If you aren't going to upgrade for a long time and since you say that you don't game much, I would probably go with the GTX 275.
