We ran Metro 2033 with Advance DOF disabled because it brought all of the cards but the GTX 480 to an unplayable state.

Yeowch.  The NVIDIA cards are still dominating in the Metro 2033 results we see here and while the ROG Matrix 2GB HD 5870 card is almost able keep up with the GTX 470 at the 2560×1600 resolution, overall the Radeon cards are still lackluster here when compared to similarly priced SKUs from NVIDIA.
