Yes, the 6850 is a much better card that a GTS 450.
Hands down, it is the better choice.

i dont see how they would be the same price, the gts450 is usually a lot cheaper, the 6850 is more expensive and a lot more powerful.

+1 to all the above the 6850 is similar in performance (and should be price) to the GTX 460 1Gb version.

Do not be to worried about the temps, GPUs are designed to run HOT!

Maxing out in the mid nineties is not uncommon and the maximum allowable temperatures should be 105°C.
If your GPU does somehow heat up that far, it will automatically throttle back to keep the temperature in check.
