ATI HD 5770x2 or an ATI 6870?

as the title suggests,which one should i go for?
I can get 2 ATI HD 5770's to use in crossfire
OR
a ATI HD 6870 ? Both almost cost the same!

and now also a a Sparkle GTX 470 1.25GB/320bits is in the compotetion!
6870 looks like this:

Or although highly unlikely but if i can increase my budget by 30$,i can get a Galaxy GTX560 2GB too but first and foremost i want to know which setup would give better performance with the setup mentioned in my profile?
Or just tell me which is better overall!
Thank you

Dual 5770 will be a tad faster then a single 6870 but if you get a 6870 now,you could get another one later and it would be double the speed.

shouldn't gtx 470 be superior to 6870? In terms of memory and bits,it has more of both and not to mention physx. But i have read on a couple of other sites as well that that might not be the case.

GTX 470 and HD 6870 reach the same performance level...

But, the GTX 470 consumes a lot more power, but it also supports Physx...

Well then Gtx 470 it is,its actually 10-15$ cheaper then 6870.

physx is good and more then 256 bit is good but remember more doesn't always mean better they are the same pretty much in performance but if you Benefit from the physx then by all means go for it

you already have a 460 really not much different 470 slightly better
