  1. Neither. I recommend the EVGA GTX 460 superclocked for $190 after rebate.

    The GTX and HD 6850 are approximately equal but I prefer the GTX with Cuda as I think more applications will be taking advantage of all it has to offer. However if you contemplate going to 3 monitors at some point, then the HD 6850 would be the winner.
