I can get the 5870 card right now for $180 or get the 6950 for around $260.

5870: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

6950: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

How are they in comparison to each other?

Edit: forgot to add I will be playing games at 1920x1080 resolution.

For an $80 price difference, I would opt for the HD6950. It unlocks to an HD6970 and will perform better at high-resolutions. Have a look around for some benchmarks! I think there are some on the 'Charts' page here at Tom's Hardware.
