Default ATI 4xxx series

so i was researching on them, and it seems like the release date has been pushed back, now its going to be released on the 23rd of June, or the 25th of June.
I heard that the 4850 is going to come up in two versions, one with GDDR3, and the other with GDDR5, but the GDDR5 is going to be released in July.
is this true?
should i wait for the GDDR5 or get the GDDR3?
how much cost difference do you guys think there will be between the GDDR3, and the GDDR5?

AFAIK, there will not be a GDDR5 variant of the HD 4850, as that would make it too similar to the higher priced HD 4870. They will both launch at the same date and availability will depend on how the production of GDDR5 is going.
