Much better than the gtx 260. Almost twice as powerful. ATI is great, you'll be happy if you get a 5850.

Its a good card, a fair bit better than a GTX260 and it'll run all your games maxed out.

Your CPU may hold it back slightly in games that are CPU intensive like BFBC2. Everything else is fine.

Make sure you uninstall all nVidia stuff with driver sweeper before you install your HD5850.
