Far Cry 2
 
As you can see, in Far Cry 2 at ultra high settings, the Gainward GTX 480 is definitely faster than the HD 5870 and there is no question about it. When the AF and AA comes into play, the Gainward GTX 480 definitely shows its sheer power and the difference is quite obvious at a higher resolutions.
