Was a good review. I'm really torn between the 5850 and 5870. The 5870 obviously is better and will overclock better, but hell, just by reaching 5870 clock stocks, the 5850 performs basically equal.

Argh!

Argh!

that is true but when 5870 is overclocked like crazy 5850 oc will not be able to keep up with it
imagine what a 5870 vapor-x / atomic / toxic / water cooled will be capable of ..:huh: :o

It's the decisions you make when you have no time to make them that define who you are.

It already does beat the single GPU cards under air so your hypothesis does hold some water but blowing everything out of the water is a bit of a stretch.
