for $100 you can pick up 7750. its the newest so it will run cooler and use less wattage

If you have only $100 and those two cards to chose from, the 6850 would be your best option.
Not only is it faster, it also draws less power.

While a 7750 might be had new in this price range and it draws significantly less power, it also performs quite a bit worse than either a 5830 or 6850.

6850 if you really must buy either one of the two.

HD6850 is more powerful than the 7750 and 5830. I'd go with that one. At $100, I think it's worth it.

That is true but the 6850 will be significantly faster than the 7750 and the 5830.

For $100 get the 6850 or find a good price on a new 7770.
