Obviously the 6850 is much better. Yes both support eyefinity, although I'd go with something a bit faster for multiple monitors, depending on what psu and cpu your pairing it with.

To be able to help you choose a video card you should list the parts of your computer , cpu , ram , power supply and motherboard. Also what is your budget amount?
As it stands right now I would go with the 6850 and if it's possable a 6870.
