They're roughly the same performance, but the 5770 has lower power consumption and better features (DirectX 11, eyefinity). It just depends on how much you want to spend... The 4870 1gb can be found for around $100-110, the 5770 1gb for around $130-140.

Performance of a 4870 is slightly better than a 5770, but a 5770 has much lower power consumption and gives out much less heat, so you should pay the extra 30 $ for it.
