No I had Sapphire 4870 from Overclockers UK last week, ran it for 3 days, it experienced very bad fps in games and got horrible average 4fps in Crysis at 1280x1024 8xAA. It either bad card or bad driver, I RMAed it for refund and got BFG GTX 260, it ran much better than 4870.

I dont think 4870 drew less power than GTX 260 at idle and load, below are from Anandtech review with idle and load power showed GTX 260 drew less power than 4870.

Intel Core i7 3770K, Corsair H80 liquid cooler with Noctua S12-1200 fan, ASUS P8Z77V with UEFI 2104, 16GB Samsung Green 30nm DDR3-RAM, Pioneer BDR-S09XLT 16x Blu-ray writer, Corsair AX850 PSU, Western Digital 2TB SATA3 hard drive, CanonScan LiDE 210 scanner, Microsoft Internet Keyboard, Microsoft Touch Explorer mouse, 32inch Sharp LC32LE600 LED TV, EVGA Geforce GTX 670 SC 4GB with Geforce 370.50 driver, 50Mb broadband Virgin Media VMDG480 Super Hub, Aspire Xplorer Midi Tower, Windows 8.1 Pro 64bit.
