perfomance is okay but compare to GTX 480 this is not from NVIDIA or ATI FANBOY i honestly like both nvidia or ati.. but based on my experience..
GTX 480 is much better.. Heat/performance wise i would go with gtx 480..
no matter what i do on ati 5870... even i try to adjust the fan speed its still loud.. and im not going to stay enable it just 30% speed otherwise ur temp will go super super high like 70-90+celcius. so compare that to fermi...
atleast in fermi highest i got 70+celcius at 50%-65% speed. and thats not loud compare to the asus 5870 v2.. after u hit 31% fan speed u will hear a super super loud noise... so at 100% speed compare to gtx 480 100% fan speed. imagine 4x to 5x louder... 5870 v2 FAN noise level is like a vacuum cleaner that loud.. im serious about it..
