Technically, since the 5970 is two 5870's, the 5970 would be better and "more fast." It all is up to you though. The price is also a factor, the cheapest 5970 on the egg is $700 where as the cheapest 480 on the egg is $470.

5970 is faster, but it is a dual GPU setup so its not really in the same class. A 5870 compares more with the GTX480 in most applications.

Sometimes the gtx480 is better than the 5970 though if you look at some benchmarks with games.
