Depending on the games you play and the resolution of your monitor, they pretty much trade punches as to frame rate:
Power Supply-wise, the 470 is a 215W card, while the 6870 is only 151W. So the AMD would have the edge there if you have a low end PSU.
They both need 2 x 6 pin connectors, so be sure you have enough PSU for whichever you choose.
