There isn't a shortage of ATI cards this side of the pond yet, but I wonder what my best option is.
Prices seem a bit more expensive than the prices people in the U.S. used to pay for them.

A local store has these cards:

HD 6950 1gb Gddr5 for € 226.10 (800 Mhz processor, 400 Mhz RAM DAC, 5000 Mhz memory speed)

Eah 6870 2di2s 1gd5 for € 205.19 (915 Mhz processor, 400 Mhz RAM DAC, 1050 Mhz memory speed)

HD 6850 Overclocked Edition 1gb Gddr5 for € 176.62 (820 Mhz, 400 Mhz RAM DAC, 4400 Mhz memory speed)

HD 6850 1gb Gddr5 Pci-e for € 155.01 (775 Mhz, 400 Mhz RAM DAC, 4000 Mhz memory speed)

R5850 Twin Frozr II / Radeon Hd 5850 1gb for € 198.69 (725 Mhz, 400 Mhz RAM DAC, 4000 Mhz memory speed)

So any suggestion as to what the best option is here?

Im waiting for 2 x 6950's to be delivered.  Most cards can be unlocked to effectively 6970's, and after researching, I concluded this was best bang for buck.

For me the best are 5870 and 5970. Best Mhash/J ratio.

It's mostly sold-out or on backorder, with 2+ weeks for delivery. Overclockers UK seems to have it in stock, but they don't deliver to my country Sad. OP may have better luck.
