The stream processor on an ATI card is very different than the one on an nVidia card so you cannot directly compare their specs through core speed or core count, you need to look at the benchmarks.

They both perform similarly, but last i saw GTX 260s were going up in price so the 4870 was cheaper, but rather than a 4870 i would suggest a 5770, it uses significantly less power and provides similar performance.

Hmm this has potential to be an extremely large thread.
