They come to the same price after the rebate but now I need more help on the details. And I realize I probally wont notice a lick of difference but all the same I want to get the best for the price.
According to the base average stats:
The radeon has a higher texture fill rate while the geforce has a higher pixel fill rate.
The radeon has a memory bandwidth of 76.8 GB/sec and the geforce is at 98.4 BG/sec.
And the radeon has 40 Texture units vs the geforces 32.
The radeon has HDMI 1.4a the Geforce has 1.3a.
Also as a side note I will not play Dirt 3 so I do not count that as a plus.
Another thing I do not post this to throw out the helpful opinions of anyone.
Something to think about, even though this is "solved". Cards that SLI must have the same model number, for SLI to work. Cards that crossfire (ATI Cards) can be different models. So, if in the future, you find that the card you have, is not cutting the mustard, you can upgrade to another ATI card, 69xx or 7xxx series, and still do crossfire, getting longer use out of your current card, and boosting the performance of your newer card.
Just something to think about. Good luck with your system.
