So It would be better for gamings sake to just stick with 2 1gb 4890s crossfired? (and cheaper to boot)

Unless 5870 can be overclocked that high as well.

Its up to you. If you get a 5870, you can CF it with another one or a 5850 down the road. Getting (2) 4890 is also a good choice. If it were me and I didn't already have (1) 4890 and had $349-399 ready, I would just get a 5870 in a few days. If I already had a 4890, it would be a harder choice.

Unless what? To beat or match a 1Ghz 4890 CF?

for a few reasons:
1. pure specs-wise on paper: match 4870/4890 (ROPs, Shaders, GFLOPS, texture, pixels)
2. core and mem clocks: matches stock 4890 (850 mhz core) surpasses stock 4890 mem clock (1200mhz mem)
3. per AMD benchmark (bias or not): on average beats a 4870 X2 by ~15-20% (the definition of what a 4890 does over a 4870).

I could be wrong and more review will tell us soon, but that how I see it.
