I agree in the 6870, the 6870 will be something like 30-50% faster depending on what you are doing. I just picked an open box one up on E-Bay for 110 bucks, so if you are willing to go this route it would be a far better choice. Sometimes you can find rebates (like the one linked previously) that bring them down near your 150 price point.

And If I will buy in far future one more Graphics card and add by crossfire with the card what i am going to buy at this moment, would you still recommend me to buy 6870?

if you have the money, get something like a 7870 now. its better to have 1 powerful card than 2 weaker cards. if you dont have the money, get the 6870
