Well this is a no-brainer -- for significantly less cost, the 5850 has roughly equivalent performance.  That is if you only care about mining.  If you're also a gamer, the 6950 is the more attractive card.  Keep in mind that, with the currently exponentially rising difficulty level, you are only going to get a few months of worthwhile mining out of this card before it's not even worth running anymore, so what are you going to do with the card after that?

Gaming would be my answer.

Well i curently own a 6950 2gb, wich iv been doing some mining on.

The card im buying would be dedicated to mining 24-7

Maby buy a 6950 and put it in the other rig, when mining dies out ill just put it in crossfire with my other card?

Another plus for the 5850 is that you will not experience this problem that the 6950s have been experiencing:

If you going to buy the 6950 which one should you buy?
The pci express 2.0 one with opengl 3.9
Or the pci express 2.1 opengl 4.1 800mhz
Or pci express 2.1 opengl 4.0 810mhz
?

Mine only when pc is IDLE totally indivisible...

Can't crossfire 5850+6950

i know u cant crossfire 6950+5850..

i was thinking about puting the new GPU in another Computer that would run 24-7 since i already have a 6950..

Concidering the 6950 since i could always crossfire it with the one i have right now if bitcoin mining dies
