Thoughts on cards between $200-$250

So I'm building my first computer, and I have everything except the GPU and the optical drive. I have $200 -$250 to spend on a graphics card. I have been looking at everything from factory overclocked GTX-460s to GTX-470s. I am not against an AMD solution though, like a 6850/6870. My question is which you guys would suggest?

I'm basing my budget on retail price, sorry that I didn't make that clear. That being said, there are plenty of 6870's on Newegg.com at $230-250.

Two weeks ago I would have said GTX 470 hands down, but after seeing some HD 6870s all the way down to ~$230, I've changed my mind completely.

This one would be my choice:

Newegg.com - XFX HD-687A-ZNFC Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

I would go with the 6870. their performance is great at this time, and prices are cheap.

Do any of you guys have experience with 3D on either Nvidia or AMD cards? If so, which is better or more user friendly?
