Sapphire 4870 1gb vs. MSI gtx 260 896mb

Which one out of these two you think will perform better? I plan on using this for gaming, web design, and watching blu-ray movies. Do you think PhysX is more important or is GDDR5 more important in the long run?

MSI gtx 260 896mb $209.99 (after promo code)

  1. Both will perform well enough.Radeon 4870 wins at some games while 260 216 core wins at some others...

    I'd go for the gtx 260 though cuz its 30$ cheaper(its actually 199$ after MIR)
  2. I actually just got a GTX 260 Core 216...what a long name. I couldn't find any 4870 1GB for close to the same price. I paid 240 with shipping and got COD WAW and a $30 MIR. I don't think a 4870 1GB could come close to matching that value.
