Here is the CF compatibility chart:

Can you CF a HD5870 and a HD5850? Yes
Will they then act like 2 HD5850s? Yes

You will still need to use the physical interconnect to the best of my knowledge.

Good luck!

Doesn't really matter if you get the overclocked version. You'll have the power of a 5970 with those two cards crossfired.
