If you are overclocking, teh lower end MSI boards are known to blow the VRMs. I would go with a Gigabyte or Asus and likely an 890FX or 990FX based board.
What CPU are you planning to pair this with?
Also, the 6950 is faster than the 6870, but the 6870 represents a very good value for the money.
Any reason you want to go AMD? Your budget might be able to gve you an i5 2500K, which is a pretty fast platform for everything.
