I am using one right now on my 2008 8 core and love it. Keep in mind I purchased the 5870 card to game in bootcamp and have seen definite improvement over the previous GT8800 that blew up on me in Dec 09.
As an editor I notice little improvement in FCP6 & Motion performance but that is not why I purchased the card.
