I been using a Sapphire 5870 for 2 years now and debating if I should upgrade. I can get about $170ish for my old card and should I even bother upgrading or just stick with my 5870.

Stick with the 5870, get another if you really want to upgrade.

1. sell it on ebay/amazon and get a gtx 580 &590.

2. stick with the card and wait til the "actual" upgrade

3. get yourself a crossfire setup with another 5870

4. if you don't play game or folding/ decode then that 5870 will last you very long.

instead of asking us if you should upgrade, ask yourself "are games running well" if the answer is no, then upgrade, if the answer is yes, dont upgrade.
