I have the chance to buy 2 5870s for just under $600.

With the current difficulty, is it profitable to be mining anymore?

Thanks.

Good!
2x5870 -> ~800MHas/s -> 0.53BC/day -> ~10%/day

 Depends if you are buying these cards for mining only. If so - I believe no cards will come close to recouping their cost now (remember difficulty increases very fast). If you were getting them for gaming, sure a few $ a day will be earned (whether you think thats worth 24/7 usage is up to you)

not worth it...... unless miracuously bitcoins are someday worth $1000 ea. then it might be worth it.  but you could have saved a lot of time and electricity if you used that $600 to buy 30 bitcoins.     you'll never mine 30 bitcoins using 2x5870 for the rest of your life.
