Ive read and seen benchmarks and overclocking of both, and apprently the 5970 will outperform the latter.

You could ask on overclocker.net
They spend all day answering questions about GPU's

The 5970 might be bottlenecked by some of your components.
But, on the positive side, it will be future proof.

the single 5970 is the better of the two options

+1 for single Radeon HD 5970.

Although I'm confident that a setup of two Radeon HD 5870s would be better/faster in extreme high resolutions/quality (2,560 x 1,600/MAX AA and AF) than a single Radeon HD 5970.

Well, like I said before, If you're planning to game at insane resolutions (anything beyond 1,920 x 1,080) than I guess two 5870s would give you the best possible performance.

But then again, with the current state of drivers/games these days, a single card setup is still the way to go imo.
