WHen playing swtor, my 6850 handles it well. I just see anomlies every once in a while. For instance I see a black mountain in the cut scene in Alderaan (inserted below)

Not sure why that one mountain is black, it is not supposed to be. These blacked out objects happen a couple other places. Any suggestions of what to do.

I also plan on making some changes to my Rig in the next couple months. I want to upgrade the CPU to a Zosma, and either get another 6850 to go dual. Should I get another 6850, or can I even get a 6870 to crossfire. Should I just buy a 560 instead? SO many options.

I used to have issues like that in every MMO back in the day. I had cooling problems, but I don't think that's what you're experiencing. There are definitely a ton of options -- I'd probably stick with the 6850 unless you're noticing that it is not performing to your standards in some games. If that's the case, assuming your PSU and motherboard can support it, 2x6850s wouldn't be bad at all. They'd be quite powerful, actually.

There are a million things that can cause GPU artifacting like you're describing. Places to start looking are:

1) Catalyst control panel settings (I can't be much more specific since I'm currently on an nvidia card, sorry)
2) Driver updates
3) Heating problems (I don't think this would be the issue on your rig)
4) GPU defect
5) DirectX or OpenGL glitch/conflict
6) Game glitch

PS - I think you're having trouble posting that attachment because there's a space in the file name, but I'm not sure.

I was watching a video and on the video it showing this same anomaly. It must be in the game itself, or a common issue.

Do you still see this issue frequently? I've played a lot of games with these problems - it's not always the hardware, so you could definitely be right.

No, I always see it when my spaceship is leaving Alderaan and Tython (i think) the mountains in the background has one blacked out. when I saw it on yourtube Im starting to think its in the game itself as a bug.
