6850 or gtx 460.... which brand ?

Here's my setup :

CPU : AMD Phenom II X6 1055T 2,8 GHz
Mobo : ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3
RAM : G.SKILL DDR3 2x4 GB 1066 MHz CL7
Graphics : PENDING
HDD : Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s
PSU : OCZ ModXStream Pro 700W Modular High Performance Power Supply
Case : Thermaltake Element G Black ATX Mid Tower


Id like to know which brand to go with. I want something QUIET. And also I'm not sure if I need a gtx 460 or a radeon 6850. I'm leaning toward the 6850 because it seems to perform better in most games, but id like to have your input on this anyway.....

    I second this, I just bought the exact model Gigabyte 6850 samuelspark linked to from newegg, and it installed effortlessly in win 7, super quiet, and games well.
