Hello. I've won two 4850's in a contest. I have a 3870x2 video card. Which one do you think would have better performance?

4850's in CF will easily be more powerful than a 3870x2...

Indeed. In terms of cards from this generation an HD3870x2 is approximately equal to an HD5770 while the crossfired HD4850s will be on par with an HD5850.

As a single 4850 performs about the same as your current 3870x2 (a bit faster with AA, a hair slower without), a pair will totally destroy it.
Defiantly a worthy upgrade, just be sure your PSU is up to the task before installing.
