The 5850 is the best. The 6870s are more powerful than the 6850s (faster clock and more cores).

No, a 6850 < 5850 < 6870. So you need a 6870 to be more powerful than a 5850 or the less powerful 6850. Don't let the naming scheme confuse you. Look at the benchmarks.

That power supply is fine for any single graphics card and will run the 5850, 6850 or 6870 in Crossfire.

In case you didn't notice, he didn't include a 6870 in his comparison of 3 cards.
