one 6870, you should get this:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

it will be practically the same performance without all the headaches of crossfire, then just sell your 5770 on ebay and you'll be set--> then you can buy another 6870 down the road! :) 

also you should overclock that cpu! its very overclockable with the right cooler

Another vote for one 6870 now then one later on.
That's exactly what I'm doing. :D 

I also recommend the card jjb8675309 linked you to.
It's a wonderful card. Looks great. Performs amazingly well.
You also get an awesome deal on price with that MIR (which I just remembered, I need to send mine in).
XFX has fantastic support as well. You also get Shogun 2, free.
