My System Specs

Default 2x5770 Crossifre V.S. 5850

So i am about to buy 2x5770's for my secondary system, but i also have a choice to get a 5850 for a bit more money.

Which one would be better for me if i play BFBC2 and CRYSIS?
Will the Antec Truepower New 650w be enough for the crossfire? (It worked with my 5970 and my gtx295 co-op, so it probably would work right? Got new powersupply for my main system though.)

Having a single card is usually better, it consumes less power, and gives you less headaches with games not liking crossfire.
