What's the difference? Not much.

If they're both within your budget, get whatever's cheaper.

I wonder why they didn't call it the 6770 then.
They decided to change their naming scheme apparently. Kinda annoying but oh well. Just remember to look for the *9** series from now on as the performance enthusiast cards.

If you do any distributed computing clients, the 5870 is better since it has double precision. The 6870 does not have double precision.

5870 wins in single gpu, but 6870CF beats 5870CF. Basically, they're same lol
