My response would be -- what settings are you playing at? The 295 is going to give you considerably more room with higher levels of AA. You'll likely be able to use nhancer to force Combined AA modes for an excellent image quality. With the 4870 1gb, you will be slightly more limited. Look at these benchmarks, they'll give you a good idea of general performance difference. The 295 is obviously more powerful than a 4870 1gb.
