If you run a 3870 and a 3850 it will downclock the 3870 to the same speed as the 3850.

4800 series would be nice to keep up with the times, new software, drivers etc, but if you decide to go 3800 series thats still very good, i heard those 3870 and the x2 are beasts even by today's standards.

Get another 3850, if you get a 3870, it will downclock your card to that of a 3850
Gets the job done
