maybe you could try to find a showroom card. prices where i live are similar but i managed to get a Gigabyte HD 5850OC for ~140$ because the package was opened.

Can 5850s really go to 375?  The stock was like 250 so that's a pretty huge increase.

Expensive one is better for longer time, cheaper one is more safer.

The 5830s are a bit better initial $/Mhash, but the 5850s have better W/MHash, which translates into better long-term $/Mhash.
The 5850s will also give you better Mhash/rig, so less overhead costs for remaining components if you plan to build multiple rigs.

Yha but I leave in a different country and I know I'm going to overclock them..
So I prefer having the warranty in my own country

And they are sold out now, and more expensive through other routes such as ebay.

oh, and 5850 aren't that expensive. I can get one for $200, new, shipped, after rebate.

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.
