Current my specs are:
-a8 3850 llano apu (using integrated graphics)
-f1a75-m pro
-2x2gb gskill ram 1333mhz
-1920x1080 resolution
-600w psu

I'm looking to either do a crossfire setup with my APU and 6670 GPU or use a single 6850 GPU w/ no crossfire. Would anyone know which would get an overall better performance?? I will be playing mainly Diablo 3 when it comes out and possibly BF3....and I will not be overclocking whatsoever

If you are going to play BF3, then I would go with the 6850. Crossfire scaling might do alright, but when you are playing a more graphics intensive game like that, one good GPU is better than two mediocre GPUs.

+1 for the 6850.

Xfire with those two graphics might be more trouble than its worth for a very small net gain in performance. Get the 6850, save up a few bucks and then get another to xfire. You will be running near a single 6950 or 6970 with a setup like that and be able to play those games no problem.
