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!

More aboutwhat 6850 help advice
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
i know EXACTLY how you feel hahaha
i think ima stick with it cuz i can add another 6850 and they ROCK in crossfire soo no big deal
