    I've got a couple of 1Gb 5670's in crossfire with an i7 processor and they score about 18,000 on 3dmark06 ... the HD5870 is quoted at about 19,500

    An old bench test i know but may be of help?

    Get the 5870 and when prices drop get a second one, that's what I did with my 3870s. 220ish USD for a crossfire ain't bad if you ask me. :D
