If you can afford, get yourself a single more powerful card (HD 5850) for now and later put another card for increasing your game performance.. What are your other system specs.?

5770 x2 should easily outperform a single 5670/5830 for an awesome price. It is also sometimes on par or slightly behind with a single 5870 on some games. I'd go for 5770 on crossfire if you're able to get both for under $320-340.

Check out some of the reviews and benchmarks:

This is what I'd do. If you get two 5770's thats it for you, no upgrading once you need something new.
