5850 is a good card but is getting older by the minute. I had to OC my card to 1000 core and 1200 memory to get IMO playable frames in BF3 so maybe look for a little bit higher end card like the new 660TI or 7950

You cannot unlock a 5850 to 5870 shaders but you can OC to 5870 speeds (Card depending)

I have never gotten any gpu spikes. Itmaybe due to unstable of on the gpu
