Default 4850CF vs 4870

As the thread topic say...

Since a 4870 Crossfire is a little pricey for me, I am looking to either get 4850CF or 4870. Now if I do get a 4870 after few months I will get another one for Crossfire..

But the question at the moment is more like 4850CF vs 4870 single card.

2x 4850's is actually pretty good value, compared to one 4870
I my self am waiting for the AIB's to flood the channel with alternatives
Then it'll be a bloodbath

Well 4850 CF will beat the 4870 in pretty much everything and is the best bang for your buck. 4870 CF is not that much higher then 4850 CF in most cases.
