the 4870x2 IS a single card, just like the 9800gx2. Dual GPU cards arent 2 cards, they are a means to a faster single card much like dual cores.

Buy what you will, keep in mind your interests. For ATI you only have 1 partner with lifetime warranty, with Nvidia you have 2 with a good rep. IF this is important to you, get it and take a bit of a performance hit.
