The interesting thing about the HD4870 is everyone regards it as a bit better than the GTX260, but that's not necessarily the case for the high res gamer.

So just because both cards are still playable that means that the obvious lead that the 4870 usually carries over the GTX 260 suddenly doesnt exist or doesnt count?

No one is claiming the 4870 to be better than the GTX 280 but if you would like I can show you more than one bench of the 4870 either being equal to the GTX 280 or surpassing it. How many charts can you show me of a stock GTX 260 doing the same?

Yeah I thought so.
