    I have a 6870 and a Phenom II X4 955 @ 3.6 GHz and 4 GB of DDR3 1600 MHz RAM and I can play Bad Company 2 at 1080p with all settings at "High", "8x AA" and "16x anisotropic" with no issues. I've never actually measured the frame rate, but it never tears and it never freezes up or slows down with explosions and stuff.
  3. Yes, it's a good upgrade, go for it, or you can ebay your 4870 to buy a brand new 6870.
