I love it thing runs like a beast...OCs like no other but heres my pseudo dilemma....

i just bought it and LOVE it got it for 199.99$ CDN yesterday

but...today i just received a 500$ cheque as a gift....my thinking is...do i return the 6850 and wait for the 6900 series to come out and grab one of those? or do i stick with the 6850 as it rocks and if need be grab another 6850 down the road?

if i return the 6850 i gotta pay a 15% restocking fee.

heres my current sytem specs

Asus m4a89gtd 890GX mobo
AMD Phenom II X4 965BE @ 3.61ghz
Patriot 2x2gb G-series 1600mhz Ram
XFX Black 850w 80+Silver PSU
XFX Radeon 6850 running at 850mhz/1025mhz
Hyper 212+ in Push/Pull
Haf 922
Win 7 64 bit

Currently on a 22" LG 2242TQ Monitor 1680x1050 (i like it/dont mind it) may upgrade one day but have no need now...and even if i did i dont got room for an eyefinity setup or a monitor any bigger then 22"s

I plan on getting CoD Black Ops or Medal of Honor and possible BFBC2

so help me decide what to do!

no telling until 6900 is out and we see prices/benches but they should be competetive, also the 6850s scale in crossfire very well so its a pretty tough decision, if you wait you might have better offerings/prices, but the drawback to waiting is if you wait you might find yourself wanting to wait again in a coulpe months so there are my thoughts on the matter personally i have a 5770 and am about to either sell it, add another, grab a 6870, and add another, or wait, its a tough call
