    i cant tell u which one is better, in benchmark the hd4870 beats the gtx260, but the difference is not more then 5 FPS..

    if u want very good looking graphics then get the GTX260 (it must be the core216)

    or

    price wise and performance wise the HD4870 is better, and don't forget to get the 1GB version, in high res it will help very much

    Get 4870
    U can crossfire it on any chipset, but for sli u need nvidia chipset or very high end intel mobo.

    Ati supports direct x 10.1, doesnt support physx but a software patch could allow it.
    Nvidia supports physx & cant support direct x 10.1 even with a patch.

    Giddy can be traced back to the same Germanic root *gud– that has given us the word God

    There are two versions of both GPU's
    4870: 512MB and 1GB versions
    GTX260: Standard GTX260(192core) and GTX260 Core 216

    In general from my point of view based on current games,

    GTX260(192Core) = 4870 512MB
    GTX260 Core216 = 4870 1GB

    ATI has much better anti-aliasing, keep that in mind. As to current games, some games(texture bound) tend to favour the GTX260 architecture, while some games (Shader bound) tend to perform better on the 4870...look for reviews too see which games you play and what GPU favours those particular games

    However, future games will tend to be more shader bound where ATI has an advantage, so i would opt for the 48701GB over the GTX260 Core216. However I would choose the GTX260 (192core) over the 4870 512MB, simply due to the increased framebuffer which will be beneficial in future games.

    Hence for current and future games in mind,

    Get GTX260(192core) over 4870 512MB, or
    Get 4870 1GB over GTX Core216
