5850 is the obvious choice, less power consumption, roughly the same performance, No scaling issues, less heat.....

Just make sure you have a 500W quality power supply or better. And that the rest of your system is fairly up to date.

I would wait for the 5830 and later on CF.

If this is not an option then a single 5850 should be the best option...

5850...cheap and can run anything at 1920x1080 smoothly except for maybe crysis (coming from a sapphire 5850 owner)
