5870 beats 6870, but the XFX 6870 black edition is really good, probably the one with 2 fans will be quiter and cooler, but i'm not sure about that, look on newegg, you can find better ones cheaper

You should compare 6950 to a 5870, the 6870 is out of the price range...

^ are you sure? maybe check newegg there's 10$ difference... but in performance 6870 is 10% below the 5870, which is 10% below 6950 and 5% below 560

The HD6950 really isn't much more than the HD6870 you are looking at and it can be unlocked into an HD6970.
