ATI 4890 Benchmarks? What should I expect?

Hey, waiting for my new rig (Saturday, 5 more days)...

I managed to get a XFX 4890 XT in there, it was cheaper than the 4870 because it was on a special. Im wondering how does it stack up to say the Nvidia GTX275? or GTX 260 c216, or dare I say the Nvidia GTX280.

Coulden't really find much benchmarks on it.
And if anyone has one, whats its idle temp like?...

Corsair XMS3 2x2GB DDR3 1600, MSI 790FX GD70,

Overall, it performs the same as a GTX275 (mix and match, some games this card wins, others the GTX275 wins). The overclock can be very high, which boosts it alot in games.
