6890 or 5850

Choosing a GPU within the next week and I adore the look of the 5850 but is there much difference in performance between the two? I mean In my own opinion I would sacrifice a little performance for the aesthetics of the 5850 as Im not going to be heavy gaming (well not yet anyway)
SPECS:
AMD ATHLON X3 (TRI CORE 3.2ghz)
4GB DDR3
Alpine 650W Silent PSU
Asus M5A78L-M LX

Budget - £140

Thanks

  1. I dint know that there is a 6890 also. As your cpu would bottleneck anything above 5800 or 6800, then there isnt much room for upgradation above the two....
