They perform pretty much equal, the 4870x2 only had 1GB effective ram anyway so no loss there. If you don't have to pay for it, it sounds an alright trade.

I would be very happy with that trade, you get pretty much the same performance plus the addition of DX11 support and and slew of other features. Good trade.
