To fill a lower price point without having to release a completely different card, their are minor differences between the two, which people have pointed out.

I think you should go for the 6950 as well, or else a single 6850 at the moment, and add a second when you want a performance boost. I've seen 6850's go for $160 new, so you can get two of them for $320 if your deal hunting, and they will beat a 580 performance wise.
