How much is the HD 5850?

I'd get that, as it is better than both of those GPU's.

Out of the two the HD6850 is a better buy both for performance and power consumption.

I was thinking of getting an HD 6850 or a HD 5830 , my system is below. Think it'd be a good match or is there another card that comes to mind as better? my resolution at the moment is 1280x1024, may upgrade the resolution in the future.

The HD 5830 is $ 140

The HD 6850s are around $170


the 5830 can be found cheaper than that.

6850 is much better

i wouldnt get the 5830 because if i did my psu would likely blow up. They suck a lot of power, you need a very good quality 500w unit to run it. the 6850 is faster and can be run on an antec 380w PSU.

i'd get a 5850, it's been quite cheap lately and it's faster and probably cheaper than 6850 or even the 5830 you listed.
