Default 5870 to 660ti

Has anyone here made the jump from 5870 to 660ti ? I want to know if it's worth it. I have sapphire with Arctic Cooling Accelero Twin Turbo II installed and wondering if I should sell it now like 160$ and invest in another card.

thanks

About double the performance, as long as your CPU can keep up.

Not double, but 170% yes.
