There will be a significant performance boost using the 5870 over the 4870 with Intel Core 2 Duo E8400. If you planned to purchase a ATI Radeon HD 5870, i propose you put up for sale the ATI Radeon HD 4870's and add the extra income to the 5870 budget, and get a 5970. There will be necessary to just perform the graphics card uninstall and then reinstall target. This will be help to dothe task and in the result it ca neb help to fix this problem.
