Not a too bad deal so I'll add some heat. The new 6870 etc, are barely more powerful (just a frame or two above a GTX 460 which is around equal to a 5850) but this is obviously a superior version of the 5850. If it can be had at a better price then yeah I see the coldness but otherwise its not a bad price if you'd rather have the superior cooling for better overclocking than MLAA for smoother jaggies like on the 6870.

surely you mean the gtx470

Well there about, 460 is slightly weaker and 470 slightly stronger to my knowledge? I generally use the anandtech website to check benches and they seem to suggest 5850 is between the two so comparisons could be made to either, with this kind of cooling though I suppose the 470 would be the better comparison.
