4870x2 is faster, it's just hotter and lacks DX11. I'd pass

the 1GB 5870 performs the same as the 4870X2, so i would say the 2GB version is an upgrade

I would do it. Plus the 4870 x2 is louder and consumes more power. Plus you are stepping up to direct-x 11.

Not worth it. If you traded for say the 5870 and 10 bucks it might be worth it. Nonetheless, the 4870x2 and 5870 trade blows, so its not really worth spend almost a hundred bucks to get the same or worse performance.

Plus he has no warranty on the 4870 x2 and will have a warranty with a 5870. But i would possibly try to reason about the $70 bucks though. I say about $40 bucks maybe.
