While on Ultra, I only get around 35 FPS, while high I get from 40-60.
Is that ok? Because I have been told it can run BF3 on ultra with no problem :\
Also, if, in the future, I would want to Crossfire it, would I rather go with the same 7850 from Gigabyte or any other company, or should I get the 7870? Or maybe even the 7890? Will getting a 788\90 give me even extra boost over 7850?
Thank you!

If you average 35 FPS on ultra you are doing as well as could be expected from that card. With crossfire it is usually best to go with the exact same card if possible.

So Crossfired 7850 will be better than 7850+7870\7890 combo?

The second card would be downclocked to run at the same level as the 7850 so buying a more powerful card is a complete waste of money.
