Icon17 AMD Radeon HD 5870 vs NVIDIA Price/Performance Chart @ 1920x1200

I made this for friends and I'm not really sure if anyone here cares but I punched together Anand's test data and combined it with newegg prices for a price/performance spreadsheet. I only used 1920x1200 since that is the resolution that almost all my friends and I play at. I also only selected certian single-gpu cards since my friends and I are very hesitant to consider SLI/CF.
These benchmark results:
- Crysis Warhead (1920x1200, 4xAA, Max)
- Far Cry 2 (1920x1200, 4x AA, Max)
- Battleforge (1920x1200, AA, Max, Dx10)
- World of Warcraft (1920x1200, 8xAA, Max)
- HAWX (1920x1200, 4xAA, DX10, Max)
- Dawn of War 2 (1920x1200, AA, Max)
- Resident Evil 5 (1920x1200, 4xAA, Max)
- Batman Arkham Asylum (1920x1200, no AA, Max)
- Left 4 Dead (1920x1200, 4x AA, Max)

Were combined with the pricing at of these video cards:
- ATI 4850
- ATI 4870 (1GB)
- ATI 4890
- ATI 5870
- Nvidia GTS 250
- Nvidia GTX 260 (216)
- Nvidia GTX 275
- Nvidia GTX 285

Into this Dollars Per FPS chart:

Or the other way around, FPS per Dollar chart:

Last one, % chart of the one above:

In the last chart you can clearly see that the Radeon HD 5870 is not the best price/performance buy, there are much better alternatives at 1920x1200, you also can see that NVIDIA doesn't need to reduce pricing of GTX 285 by much to actually best the HD 5870, which only has a small ~6% lead.
