5850 is about 15% slower than a 5870. The 5850 crossfire is a smidge slower than a 5970...

a 5850 at 5870 speeds is only 5% slower in most scenarios so if I were you I would just get a single 5850 and clock it at 850.1200 (which 95% of cards will do if not more). that way you get to save some cash as it looks as though you may have settled on a 5870 anyway.
