well the 4850 in CF is better then a single 5770 but I always prefer the single card solution over the multi, less driver and other compatibility issues.

Hello and welcome to the forums :) 
as ct1615 said,2 4850s perform better,but they require more power,run hotter and are much nosier.
What resolution do you play ?

For a long term, i would say single HD5770 for now and add another one later...
Yes, 2xHD4850 is more powerful than single HD5770. But 2xHD5770 is far superior and it's about HD5850 performance...

HD5770= less power consumption, less heat, less noise, dx.11, eyefinity, best card for your money... :)

    the two GPUS certainly perform better than the hd 5770 but you get more power consumption, no direct x 11, plus chances of crossfire bridge stauration( sudden but temporary drops in fps)
