Would the 10-15% increase in performance vs 10% price and 18% load W be enough for one to justify moving from red to green?

Sky,
Fantastic work on the reviews. As always we greatly appreciate the time and effort you put into every review.
I would say stick with the 5850, since there's probably going to be a markup on the GTX480/470 for a while.
Unless of course you absolutely need PhysX and CUDA.
