There is no difference other than that for 3 monitors it takes 1 ATI card vs 2 nvidia cards. Performance-wise, the SLI 460s slaughter the 5870.

They just flat-out beat a 5870, 2 GTX460s is equivalent to a 5970.

2 GTX460s don't beat 2 5970s, 2 OC460s beat 2 5870s. In the same theory you can OC 5870s and make them beat 470s or even 480s.

Nvidia 4xx cards tend to scale much better with multiple cards than ATI cards.
