I had someone offer $80 for it. So it would be about a $50 upgrade if you count rebates.

With shipping and factoring in rebates, a 1g 6850 would be $25 more than a 1g gtx460. So pretty much the same price. That's not making it easy to decide

Basically I think I have to decide if I'm ever going to buy another 6850 and crossfire at some point. Or will I want to upgrade to a newer card. If I'm going to just keep upgrading to new cards then I'd buy the 460 now. I'm not a "hard core" gamer, so I wonder if I'd even ever bother with crossfire other than to just try it.
