Good decision. You will be happy with the performance gain and be able to run every game at max.

It will be just fine. I had at one point a 9800GT and GTS250 Folding Happily away on my AMD Rig with an AMD Chipset :)

It all works.

Then you should learn to take a hint instead of making sale posts where they don't belong.

I'm curious to know what game you were playing that made you decide to upgrade from 2 8800GTS 512's. My 8800gt (not as powerful as your GTS) seems to run everygame with most settings maxed @ 1920x1080, and having 2 would be getting even more FPS! Enjoy that 5870 though.....
