I am purchasing a 5850 for a gaming rig, and was wondering what version to get? I am on an extremely tight budget, so the cheaper models are better, but I want a card that can clock to match a 5870 STOCK. Here are the ones that seems to be the best for me...but do they allow OverVoltage control? Are there any models that do support overvoltage?

I also agree..

In order for a 5850 to match a 5870 it needs to be clocked at 915/1265 give or take. The DirectCU can do 1000/1300 or better if your room temp is low enough.

And the best part is that it is cheaper than most other models and comes with a nice 20.00$ rebate if purchased from the Egg.

So at 1000/1300 it will pass a 5870? Wow. Looks like we have a winner on our hands. Thanks for all the help.
