Get the 5850. It will be slightly slower than 2 GTX 260's in SLI, but if you plan on getting another 5850 in the future it's a no brainer.

He's right. Nothing more to say.

Unless you have a GTX260 already, I'd get the 5850, since it has the most power. 2x GTX 260s consumes too much power for a couple more frames than a single 5850 IMO.

Definitely. And with 2 GTX 260's, you're maxed out. With an HD5850, you have room to grow, not to mention a more quiet, discreet solution, with DX11 and OpenCL. PhysX is a dead thing that is just pushed by nvidia anyhow, how many games do you know of that actually use it?
