While 6850 may score better for games, 5850 is better suited for computations like those performed when mining bitcoins.

as the posts above are saying. 5850 for mining.
as you can see here https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining_hardware_comparison
5850 can easy go above 340 mhash/s (i myself got mine to 380)
and the Highest 6850 there is at 244 mhash/s with a oc to 980 core clock.

Ok. thanx for the answers but it seems that no shops have 5850 in stock anymore. I cant find it in my country. What do you recommend from 6xxx series for mining under 200 eur?

I have a 6950 yielding approx. 270 Mhps without OC. However, if you can grab a 5830 you get almost the same Mhps for half the price.

My 5830s ($100 each) are pushing 260 MH/s at 875 MHz core frequency.

What SDK version do you use? Had a similar speed (266 @ 900 MHz) but then dropped to 248 after some experiments with SDK version and I can't figure out the cause. Using Win 7 SP1 x64, SDK 2.4 currently, and phoenix miner with phatk kernel on that particular machine.
