Take the 560 OC. Even with a factory overclock it's faster than the 5850 and it can probably be overclocked even higher. It also consumes less power and produces less heat.

Actually he might want to pick a second 5850 up for $150:

You might want to keep the 5850 and do that yourself.

Take the 560 Ti version I say. Just as good as the 6950.
