Hi there

The HD5850 trumps the HD6850 and the GTX460 gets better results at higher resolutions than the HD5850. Go figure.
The DirectCU TOP edition is a great version too.

Either is a good card on its own. If you ever think you'll get another for a multi-GPU setup, I'd suggest the 460 because the drivers for SLI support are better than those for crossfire at this time.

With many game titles, you'll get similar performance. Though you'll consistently see better performance from the 6850 in the DX11 titles:

But like I said, if you want to take the performance leap at some point with more than one card, I'd go with the 460.

The Asus GTX 460 TOP is a nice card with a good factory overclock, and good brand name reputation.
