Happy to be of some help. The reason that the 5850 is faster that the 6850 is due to a change in naming conventions - in the 3000, 4000 and 5000 series AMD/ATI cards a '700 series' (e.g. 4770 or 5750) was a midrange card and an '800' like the 4870 or 5850 was an enthusiast card. Starting with the 6000 series AMD changed it so that '800 series' like the 6850 was midrange and the new '900' (e.g. the 6970) was enthusiast - they basically just added a hundred to each card's numbering system. The end result is that the 6850 should actually be compared in an inter-generational (as well as pricing) sense with the 5750 - compared to that it's a fair step up. Different naming shenanigans happened with the 9800 GT, inasmuch as Nvidia just took the 8800 GT, bumped up clockspeeds a few percent and renamed it the 9800 GT - the entire 9000 series was one of the more cynical attempts at BS marketing in computing history.
Hey sofa! Thanks for that link. I see your right, the 5850 is a slightly better card.. why is that the only one (that I've seen) with a lower number but is better? Any idea? Also that link compares to an 8800 GT, not my 9800 GT. But I'm sure the difference isn't too big. I can't believe how much lower my temp is gonna be! That looks great! So in YOUR opinion, is this a worthwhile update considering my budget? To me, the people saying I needed to spend over $200 were wrong.. unless I wanted to get something super new. Thanks again!
