I've heard a few people saying the 5870 2GB mines much better than the 5870 1GB, but I don't see why

Theoretically it shouldn't, as even mem clocks are not important... What is important is the power of the GPU core

What is important is the INTEGER power of the GPU.

Yes if you wanna be specific :p I meant on a same and single card, mem power is not very important, instead, the core power is

Actually, more memory means more electricity, then more power needed, and more heat generated.
Yesterday i downclocked my HD5770's memory to 450Mhz (instead of 1200Mhz), and the gpu temperature dropped like 4-5°C.
That's a good point if you are mining 24/7. It isn't if you are going to use it for gaming.
