Get the best you can afford. If you can afford a 6870 then get it. You may also want to look at the 5870s since they are pretty cheap right now and generally a little faster than the 6870 (more heat though).

Newegg had a shell shocker deal the other day a HD5870 and a XFX 650w psu for $223. Keep your eye out for killer deals like that.
