A single 5870 is almost equal to a GTX295. A GTX295 performs equal to two slightly overclocked GTX260s or two under clocked GTX275s.
A 5850 performs better than a GTX285. So two 5850s will destroy a GTX295.
However, you can also just get a single 5970. It performs equal to 2x5850s, but if you overclock it, it can almost reach 2x5870 levels.
