Im sure the 7850 would have to have to be upgraded much sooner than the 7950 will, even with crossfire.
but that means ill have to get a 750w psu :/ 

so the real question is: will i save money in the long run?

single card vs SLI/CF tends to save money in the long run

1 - you need a less powerful PSU
2- you use less power
3- upgrade path means you need to dispose of two cards rather then one
4- single video card creates less heat then SLI/CF

all that said, SLI/CF tends to offer better performance then a single card and the money saved is not that much and worth it to many people who want that level graphic performance.
