Radeon 4870 or nvidia 260 GTX 216 core question

Hey guys,

I want to upgrade my 8800GTX and I am looking at either the Radeon 4870 or nvidia 260 GTX 216 core. This is the highest card my system will take without upgrading more of my system. Any suggestions on the better card?? From what I've read they are pretty close - Any suggestions help would be appreciated.
