I'm looking for a 2GB Radeon HD 5000 series. However, right now I have enough for a Sapphire Toxic Radeon HD 5850. I was just wondering if I should wait and see if I can get a mid-range 6000 series for a little more. But, I'm looking for a 2GB model for higher resolutions, since I'm going to add on monitors for Eyefinity. So, should I see if I can get a mid-range 6000 series for a little more, or get the Sapphire 5850? My max budget is $400.

CPU: AMD Phenom II X2 560, unlocked and oc'ed to an X4 970.
RAM: Mushkin DDR3 1333Mhz 4GB (2x2GB)
Mobo: Asus M4A88TD-M USB3
PSU: OCZ Fatal1ty 550W

i would wait, seeing the preliminary prices (in sweden) they look pretty cheap. have only seen the 1GB versions so far but should be the same price range as the 5000 series.

A 6870 1GB will be about the same price as a 5850 1GB is now.
NOTE that this is what i said PRELIMINARY prices in SWEDEN. :)

OK. That sounds good so far, shaky, but good if true. So by the sounds of it, it would be a good idea and wait to see. Worst case scenario is I wait another week and then get one.
