  1. Good grief. Nothing wrong with AMD/ATI, at the same price points you wont see any difference.
  2. Oh wow that is surprising since it's basically twice as powerful a card on paper. By that rationale though, you shouldn't see any performance increase by cutting the resolution way down, or disabling video card specific operations like AA, right?
  3. It would be a pretty good bump in performance assuming you are not bottle-necked by other hardware. You can get a technical comparison of those cards here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_ATI_graphics_processing_units#Radeon_R700_.28HD_4xxx.29_series The 5770 and 4870 are really similar in terms of performance, the 5770 just uses less power to do it. I'm not sure I would dismiss the 4870 so quickly considering its superior memory bandwidth, even though the 5770 has slightly higher core speed, which of these is more useful varies from game to game and I don't know which category BE falls into.
