get a 6950. there will be barely any performance benefits from a 5870, and actually in some cases the 4870x2 does perform better then the 5870. only thing you will notice with the 5870 is dx11, lower wattage and less heat/noise depending on your case. get a 6950 imo, it will be a good card for a long time still
