    AMD (ATI) and nvidia cards was build on different architecture so you can't compare their spec directly to determine their actual performance difference. in real world gaming scenario both 5850 and gtx560 (non Ti) have comparable performance even though gtx560 have much less SP than 5850. this chart should help you:
