The difference between a 5870 and a 5850 is negligible unless you really need that extra 5%. They both overclock to the same speeds as well.
I'm hardcore nVidia though so you won't see me with an ATI card. I've tried it before and got burned so never again. I'm thinking I will likely just break down and get the 480.
