Windows 7: Radeon HD 4870x2 vs newer cards

Radeon HD 4870x2 vs newer cards

I currently have a Radeon HD 4870x2 video card. How does it compare to newer cards? I am considering getting a Radeon HD 7870, but would it be worth the money yet to upgrade? Or should I wait out another generation or two?

Also, I want a card that runs reasonable temps, and I don't care at all about noise levels. Just needs to not overheat under load. I've been debating on getting an nVidia GeForce card this time, as I have had Linux driver problems with my current ATI/AMD card.

Only thing your card has against a HD 7870 is memory bandwith other then that the HD 7870 should trump that card
