Well If your running just one card the 6870 is good, if you crossfire the drivers are not the best.
But the GTX 560 is better with the drivers single or in SLI so I would say go with the GTX 560 card.
IMO.

Go with the 560, I have owned both a 6870 and a 560, and 560 worked better for me. It also has a better resale value down the road when you look to upgrade and get rid off it.

I like the 6870, but the other gentlemen bring up good points. I think I am AMD biased and in reality the cards are more or less equal to most users.

My very close friend just bought a 6870 and it actually surprised me how well it plays bf3 @ 1080p on an AMD X4 955 black edition, on high settings in 64 player multiplayer (the ONLY WAY MULTIPLAYER SHOULD BE!!)

its really a coin toss bc the 560 plays some games better, and the 6870 plays some games better. i wish i could just rum both in a SLFIREsetup lol
