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?
If you can order from newegg, they have a MSI 480 for $439 shipped that includes Just Cause 2.

Thanks for the insight.
I live in Canada (Hardware canucks?!) and that newegg.ca doens't have the same deal :/
I'd like more insights from other users too.
If you're concerned about price or want a single gpu then get the 480. If not then +1 for the 5970.
Hmm, I think I am going to get a 480. Posted a WTB post too.
