Im planning on buying a whole new rig,
750w corsair
i7 950
asus mobo that supports dual 16x at once
2gb x 3
and two 4870 cards

Im wondering if i buy two of those cards with a mother board that supports both at 16x if i should be looking for excellent performance? Or should I get a card more powerful? Anyways the reason I ask this is because on the hierarchy chart the 4870 x2 is number two on the ati side, and i figure that two 4870 both at 16x should be possibly better?

in place of crossfire buy one more powerful card
5870 will be just slightly less powerful 480GTx will be slightly more

* So one 5870 should do better than dual 4870 with both at 16x?

no it will be slightly less powerful
if you have a good deal on the 4870's and they will be 1GB each
and don't mind missing out on DX11
then 4870's crossfire is awesome as far as frame rates go
