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

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

  2. Depending on the resolution the 5870 is 70 to 100% faster than the 4870:

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