5750CF will give you the performance of a single 5850(or maybe a little better) but they have more power consumption and are noisier, i would recommend going with 1 5850

Mazier says right. 5750 in cf always better choice. But it need lot of power supply (better>750watt) and create more noise than 5850. So depend on power supply you will buy.
Price: single xfx 5850 hd ~300$
cf xfx 5750 hd ~2*140$
{if you looking for different manufacture price will be +/- 10/20$}
* price may vary respect country.
Price chosen from www.newegg.com

If you are not compelled to buy ATI, you could go with a GTX 460 1 GB and overclock it quite a bit. It will reach 5850 levels is most cases but traditionally it will be just under the performance level of a 5850. They go for roughly $230.00

Gtx 460 is olso a good choice. It is olso cheaper than ati 5850 but it olso poor than gtx 460. You can check benchmark here,

so if you going for single gpu grab 5850 hd (5870 hd will be best choice if you can but you need to spend more ~400$ :(  ). Or if you go for xfire 5750hd will be good enough (xfire with 5770hd will be best option ~2*155$ little more extra :)  ) .

You cannot use just the AVP benchies to compare the 460 to a 5850. If you look at the entire article, the following is revealed:

@ 1920 X 1200 resolution

Call of Duty - MW2 - The GTX 460 1GB flat out beats it, no need to even overclock it.
Crysis - The GTX gets 25 FPS, the 5850 gets 32. If overclocked marginally, the 460 will be very close.
AVP - The 460 gets 31 FPS, the 5850 gets 39. If overclocked marginally, the 460 will be very close.
Dirt 2 - The GTX 460 1GB flat out beats it, no need to even overclock it.
Bad Company 2 - The GTX 460 gets 59 FPS, the 5850 gets 68. If overclocked marginally, the 460 will be very close.
Just Cause 2 - The GTX 460 gets 57 FPS, the 5850 gets 61. If overclocked marginally, the 460 will beat the 5850.


My vote would be for the GTX 460, especially if you have a motherboard that supports SLI, then you can add another in the future...

I compare only avp because both gpu has directx11. And on doubt that directx11 is the future because 10-12 games are going to release within a year which directx11 capable. But You see that ati 5850 is far better than gtx 460 in avp. So i think ati 5850 is better choice. You can even put it in xfire future then in will be.... (need to speak it?)
