it looks pretty good to me, and i would go with the 5850.

in my personal opinion nvidia's bark was worse than their bite and they kinda failed on the 400 series. the 480 only beats the 5870 by about 5% and uses more power and creates more heat.

with a radeon 5000 you can better speeds, lower temps for the most part, lower power consumption and the ability to run 3 monitors off of one card
