it's a 25% savings to go the 6850 for what looks like a 13% performance drop.

Unless you play at resolutions past 16850x1050, i think a 6850 would be fine, as for me, i ordered 2 today to replace my 2 4870s, and ill be playing at 1680x1050 (prolly too much power for me, but i'll keep them a few years)
