Crossfire 4850's vs. single 5850

Hey guys...

I currently have one 4850 in my system and a psu that could handle another. Should I pick up another 4850 for 100$ or sell my current 4850 and put down another 200$ ish for a single 5850?

If this helps I'm using socket 775 (e8400 @ 3.6ghz)

Is dx11 really that worth an extra 200$ for the same performance?

Thanks in advance :)

Probably due to the fact you are crossfireing, maybe some time soon they will release better drivers.

As for the DX11 being worth it, wait a week or so when the reviews of DX10 vs DX11 on AvP come out and decide for yourself.
