^ Well GTX 470 actually is a good buy...
But as SLI and AMD are not the best combinations, the HD 58xx are better if you go with AMD CPUs...

So get the HD 5870...and which mobo are you using ??

What games do you [want to] play, and at what resolution? Maybe just a single GTX460 is enough. Do any of your games support PhysX? Have you chosen a PSU? A quality 550W unit can run any single GPU (450W for all but the very top end); you'll want 650W-850W for multiple GPUs. A quality PSU has full range active PFC (no little voltage switch) and 80+ certification for efficiency. Antec, Corsair, Seasonic, and Enermax are among the better brands.
