I'd sell your 4850x2 and get a gtx570 or gtx580, or 6970.

I'd buy the 4850 if you could get one cheap for like 40-60 bucks.

Otherwise, anything more is not worth the time and money.

Having 3x 4850s isn't something geeks think is "smart"
Its honestly not that bad. Look at my setup. I don't experience all that much microstutter. Its not as bad as you'd think. When you run into it, its a PITA, but this setup or a similar one, tri-4850 should max out most games at HD or below.
To be honest, a bigger worry is if your power supply can handle it and the immense heat load that the 4800 series generates. Single card is the way to go, but in this case, its not the cheapest.
