Do you have any problem with yours 2x 5850s? Because i think 2x 5850s is faster than a GTX570. 2x 5850 is roughly a 5970 and 5970 is probably around a GTX 580. On the retail value, 2x 5850s are around $300 i guess which is about a GTX570. However, about the performance, 2x 5850s would smack a GTX570 @ 1080p. GTX570 is known to have problems tho, not sure if it'd be a wise move for you. I wouldn't do it if i was you.

Going by used prices, the GTX 570 is worth more (I think?), but in terms of performance, I don't think you'll see any gains.

Its a couple reasons, one, I would prefer a single card, and two, I dunno if my power supply could take both of the cards. I wouldn't mind a little performance drop.
