GTX 560 Superclocked 2Gb vs Radeon 6870

I'm putting together a computer build that will be used primarily for work and gaming. I've found some video cards that are ~$200. Which of these is the best:

-EVGA GeForce GTX 560 SuperClocked 2GB -->

-HIS Radeon HD 6870 IceQ X 1GB GDDR5 -->

-Gigabyte Radeon HD 6870 1GB GDDR5 -->

-XFX Radeon HD 6870 2GB GDDR5 -->

Here is the rest of the build:

CPU: Intel Core™ i5-2500K Processor

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 w/ DDR3 2133

Power Supply: OCZ ZS Series 750W Performance Power Supply

RAM: GSKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB PC3-12800 Dual Channel DDR3 Kit

Case: Cooler Master HAF 912 Mid Tower Case

HDD: Western Digital 500GB Caviar Blue 7200rpm SATA III w/ 16MB Cache

Optical Drive: ASUS DRW-24B1ST 24x DVD-RW Drive, SATA, Black, OEM

When comparing some of the specs of the GTX 560 and one of the 6870, I noticed that the 560 had less Engine Clock and Memory Clock. Is this enough information to confirm that the 6870 is better?

    Acording to this chart the two cards are on the same level and you will always find cards that are clocked differently. So being on the same level it comes down to a personal choice and it would be between the 560 and the XFX 6870. The components in your computer are fine and will go well with either card.
