Hi Guys Recently my Ati radeon hd 4870 x2 2gb (HD-487A-CDF9) went bad and i RMA'ed it and yesterday sent me a different card an ATI radeon hd 5870 1GB (HD-587X-ZNFC) would you consider this an upgrade or a downgrade?

Thank you.

Hello and welcome to the forums
HD 5870 performs pretty much like a 4870X2 in terms of performance,but it runs cooler,quieter and has less power consumption;furthermore,it packs newer techs like DX11 and Eyefinity.So expect the same performance you got from your old card.
