i did some reading and from what I found
a) doable and safe just may not be stable at the 5870 settings
b) you dont gain the shadders of the 5870
c) most people who did it just flashed back to the 5850.

So after my research, I decided against it as it didnt seem to be all that beneficial.

Not so sure with your card. Its XFX and they no longer use reference PCB's. So using a non XFX 5870 bios may brick the card
