I would sell the 5870 while it's hot, and get a 6870 which are now less then 200 and pocket the rest(or get something faster, if you want). With the newest drivers the cards perform similarly, and the 6870 will be better in DX11. If you can't get a decent amount though, then it's probably best just to keep it.
The 6870 is not the replacement to the 5870. They just named them similar because the performance was pretty crazy for a mid range part, almost matching the previous single GPU flagship.

Actually at all stock the 6870 and Xfire 5770s will be pretty much even. The 5770s will take the edge when overclocked just because they have more headroom. The difference in DX11 games is a few frames from what I've seen.Edited by Horsemama1956 - 6/14/11 at 4:39pm
