So i'm running a Sapphire HD 5850 Vapor-X right now, and would like a little more juice. I'd like to buy the 5850 Xtreme and Crossfire it. Is it worth it? Or am I better off selling the 5850 i have now and buying a newer card altogether?
Since I'm living in Singapore, and I can't find the card anywhere in shops here, I'm thinking of buying it from amazon and shipping it over. It costs me 165 USD to ship it here.

Get another 5850
I would recommend you get another 5850 Vapor-X so you have two cards of the same speed with the same BIOS (if they aren't using the same BIOS version then update them) to minimize any issues ^_^
