Edit: so now my question is, which is better between the two,
GTX 460 or the HD 6850. Is the 6970 better than both? I may overclock depending on how hard it is.

So now that the 5850s are sold out everywhere, will they ever be restocked?

Need to know whether I should wait or just get a 6850 for my bugdet build.

I don't think it will be in stock any time soon if ever. I suggest skipping the 6850 and go straight for the 6870.

Doesn't the 6870 take up 2 slots on the mobo?
I'd like to utilize CF in the future and the mobo I'm planning to get only has 2 slots for a GPU...

The 5850 also takes up two slots.Almost every "powerful" card today takes u two slots.
