As far as I know the 280 is about similar. You should google it however. Just type "HD 5870 vs" and it will pop

Not even close . You probably meant 480. The 5870 is in between a 470 and a 580

As for the video card, according to PassMark's benching website you're about in the middle of a GTX 465 and a GTX 470.

I'd say 5870 is in between a GTX 470 and 480..

In benchmarks it's between the gtx 470 and the gtx480 (gtx 570) - these are general results.

But in these reviews it's often slower than gtx 470s, BUT the overclockability of the 5870 is much better, so I would say it beats the gtx470... but still slower than the gtx480 in most games.

the problem would be crossfire... the 5870s fails big on this... even the slower 6870 beat if on CF because of better scaling.
the 6870 alone also beats the 5870 when tesselation is on - as well as the 470 (that's why we see many cases where the 470 wins in those "comercial" reviews)
Still.. My opnion is that no single card of today is able to handle a game with tesselation alone, you eighter go multi GPU or wait for the future, where I see tesselation shining...
