Meh, I just liked ATi because they're Canadian. I've never owned an ATi card though. nVidia is where it's at with price vs. performance. 'Nuff said.

Iv been with nvidia for a few years now, and I feel that ATI has superior image quality, plus overall their more aesthetically pleasing. If worse comes to worse the 3870 will be just as fast as the 8800GT yet more future proof due to dx10.1 support.
Not any more. That was the case 5 years ago. Well.. ATI may look better to some, but both offer very similar image quality.

By the time you've fitted an aftermarket cooler you might as well pick up an 8800GTX from DC for 511 and OC the crap out of it with the stock heatsink.
