Question Asus EAH5850 Radeon HD 5850 DirectCU T or Asus ENGTX460 DirectCU GeForce GTX 460 1GB

Hi.

I`m currently having a dilemma, I can`t seem to decide which video card should I get.

Asus ENGTX460 DirectCU GeForce GTX 460 1GB
Asus ENGTX460 DirectCU GeForce GTX 460 1GB PCI-E w/ Dual DVI, HDMI at Memory Express Computers $179.99 after mail in rebate
or
Asus EAH5850 Radeon HD 5850 DirectCU TOP 1GB
Asus EAH5850 Radeon HD 5850 DirectCU TOP 1GB GDDR5 OC PCI-E w/ DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort at Memory Express Computers $189.99 after mail in rebate

I mean, there is only a $10 difference between them. I don`t know if my power supply have an 8 pin pci-e connector, but it does have a 6 pin pci-e connector. Which one would be the better value at this price point.

My current resolution is 1280x1024 but want to futureproof my purchase for up to 1600x1200 res max settings if possible without upgrading any other components.


Running a C2D e6300 at 2.56GHz

2GB DDR2 ram
GeForce 7600 GT KO 256MB DDR3
Nmedia MP-500 500W ATX Power Supply
320GB Main Drive SATA

Thank you for your opinions.
