if you had to choose i would go with a 5830, but honestly, save for a couple more weeks and get a 5850...

It's usually better to go with a single card as that is the most supported setup. I'd get the 5830 but I would really recommend a 5850 or even 5870. The 5830 will be enough to play most games on a single monitor setup at high settings, if you have a high resolution monitor (above 1080p) you may want to go with the 5850. I'm running 3 1920x1080 monitors on my 5870 and it works fine in everything but Crysis, so if you only plan on single monitor gaming the 5870 is probably overkill unless you want to max out Crysis.
