Hi guys, this will appear like a super stupid question, but I would just like to clarify to avoid confusion. Is it possible for me to purchase the 4870x2 and just use one of them? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Because if so, I can share it with another friend can't I? It will be so much cheaper than just buying the single card.

no dude, you've got the wrong idea.
4870x2 is two of 4870 in 1 card. they are almost double the speed of single 4870 and can only be use for 1 computer at a time. If by sharing you mean taking it out of your computer and put it in your friend computer in vice versa then, yes; however, If you mean to by split it in half physically and put one in your computer and other in your friend computer then that would be , no.
