So we shall see. I probably won't buy either until I get a bonus in June (unless I get some extra dough in between) so it may be a different picture then.
And FWIW with an overclocked 5830 nipping at the 5850's heels for $50 or more less, THAT makes the playing field look quite interesting at this time as well.
