Hi, Is the 5870 a vast improvement over the 4870 card(which I am using), Trying to figure out if it is worth the 300£ ,I play games all the time,4870 has crashed on me a couple of times,Think i had it oc too much:)

5870 is worth upgrading from 4870
It performs good upto 2500x1600
It is an good choice for the price point

You may wanna crossfire 2 5770 to get similar performance at a considerabley lower price point
2 5770 HD costs $320-$330 USD,
A 5870 costs $400
But you still get an upperhand with 5870.

If your resolution is over 1680x1050 it's worth it. Otherwise it wont make much of a difference.
