DEFINITELY the Sapphire HD6870!!!

It is better in most games and its newer.
It runs cooler.
Less power usage.
AND importently its much quieter!

Personally I would go for the 570, its faster, and provides a better upgrade plan
if you ever decide to SLI/ Crossfire.

The GTX 470 is 5% faster than HD 6870 and comparable with a GTX 560 Ti
I would definitely go for GTX 470 if it's in a good condition, it's used right ?

lol dude..

Do you notice it says 'rating' chart? How is that a benchmark???

Only way to easily compare is for example Frames per Second. One cannot go on mysterious 'rating'.

Think and read more before you post, it's not a shame to learn.
The link i provided is based on Games have been tested on Both cards, it compares it via the FPS term, the better GPU gives a higher FPS (Frames Per Seconds)
The links you provided are based on people's opinions and thoughts, no real world benchmarks provided or proven.
