Best card for < $200?

Im looking to decide on a video card for a new set up before friday.
Its going to be a Asus P8P67 Deluxe Rev 3.0 Motherboard.

Im not wanting to go crazy and buy a 400$ card.
Hoping for something around 200$ +/- $50.
Any input would be great

Perhaps one of these one be a good choice, depending on which camp you prefer:


NVIDIA:
Newegg.com - EVGA SuperClocked 01G-P3-1461-KR GeForce GTX 560 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

AMD/ATI:
Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100314-3L Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card


What exactly do you want out of your card?


If gaming is not something you'll be doing there are cheaper cards to be had that will do a great job for Video etc.

Either of these would be decent for gaming in this price range.

I just recently replaced my GC to this and I am simply blown away with the detail and quality. Runs around $250 but well worth it if ya ask me. The only thing you have to worry about is that you have to have a PS of over 500w but 850w is reccommended and it takes (2)6 pin power. If you have a small chassis then this is not a card for you as it is a monster 8.25" x 4.25" x 1.5... You asked for opinions and here is mine so enjoy and good luck finding what your looking for.

One other thing I forgot to mention is this card is also setup for 3D!!!! I have a 3D tv and this thing rocks with some games and the list is getting bigger. here is the nvidia website for some of the programs here
