I only mentioned the 5970 because I noticed the stock 470 equals its mins and passes them when OCed. The stock 5970 beats the stock 470 by 25FPS in averages and by 15 when the 470 is OCed. I was also surprised that was with 8xAA which is supposed to the 5800s strong point.
Far Cry 2 is an nvidia game and as such will run better on Nvidia cards.
They all run it good enough though so including it in a benchmark is pretty much useless.
Games that most people play and care about
: Metro2033, BF BC2, AvP, Crysis Warhead(just for fun), Stalker COP, Dirt 2, ME 2, ARMA 2 and Just Cause 2.
How far can the GTX 470 be overclocked at stock voltages?
Speaking of dual cards - that imho is another plus for the 5850 as the OP only has a 750w PSU so he wouldn't be able to add a second card later without upgrading his PSU.
