Default Two GTX 480s vs Three 5870s

Would like some input on which setup is better overall. My current specs are as follows:
Intel Core i7 980X @ 4080MHz
Asus P6X58D Premium @ 24 x 170MHz
6 GB Mushkin Redline @ 2040 DDR
Three ATI 5870 in CrossFireX @ 930/1250
50GB OCZ Vertex 2 SSD
Three 1TB SpinPoint F3 in RAID-0 - 3TB
1TB SpinPoint F1
LG 32LD450 32" LCD
Samsung 22X SH-S223L DVD-RW
Asus Xonar Essence STX sound card
Antec Twelve Hundred case
Prolimatech Megahalems heatsink
Corsair HX 1000W power supply
Windows 7 x64

I've been debating on selling the three 5870s and going with two GTX 480s. I'd like some input on how the drivers are on the nVidia side. How does SLI compare with two 480s vs CrossFire with three 5870s?
