Default 5870 vs 480 for 2560x1600?

I currently have a 4870x2, and Crossfire is really bugging me. I want to upgrade to a single GPU solution.

I only game at 2560x1600, and I would like to know what the best choice is. The 480 is more powerful, a $100 more expensive. Is it worth jumping from 4870x2 to the 480? Or should I get on the less powerful 5870?

My cpu is a q9550 at 3.7. How much big of a bottleneck would this be?
