Are you just making a statement, or is there an actual question here? Because honestly, the two cards you're considering aren't really in the same league in terms of performance or price...
^+1. GTx 460 is a much slower card when compared to the rest two.
Why are you selling 4870x2? You should not sell it as HD5870 won't give you a significant boost in performance.
In terms of upgrade you would minimum have to go GTX480 and preferably HD5970! Anything less is not an upgrade.
