The lowest price on newegg for the 4870 512mb is for the Sapphire for $180 after rebate (so two would be $360)
There's a promo code going on where you get an additional $20 off each card. But, the OP didn't make any price/performance so I just went with cheapest first, and best for last.

the 4870x2

right now it's equal to 2 4870s 1GB. but when Sideport is enabled (a method of communicating between the 2 cores, correct me if i'm wrong), it's be 10-15% faster. also, i wouldn't buy it JUST yet, but buy it when nvidia releases the GTX295, cause the 4870x2 will be priced competitively against it.
