I'm looking at 5850s. Most of them are sold out. It appears one of the only ones still available are this one

or this one

Should I buy one of these or wait for some of the rest to become available?

Or should I bite the bullet and order it online?

The first 5850, with the stock cooler is entirely fine. The card runs cool and you really don't need a custom cooler even if you want to overclock...

That's great. The dude at the store said the same thing, but you know how reliable they can be.

My needs aren't overly hardcore, the most intensive game I currently own is BF: BC2. I put the Sapphire on hold but still wanted confirmation. Anyone else want to chip in, great!

I agree with Bluescreen, The stock cooler is good enough even for mild overclocks.
