I recently heard about the new Mantle, and am wandering about compatability. I have an HD 5850, which I am planning on upgrading but I dont know if that will be any time soon, so I am wandering if Mantle is compatable with the HD5850? Or does that only work with newer hardware?

It's only compatible with cards built on the new GCN architecture (7k series and up). However, by the time you'll see any mantle-exclusive game (if ever), all current cards will be legacy, so don't worry.
