Out of those 2 I'd probably go for the 6870. It's a good all around card that isn't from the absolute high end lineup. Now if there was a 560Ti for cheap I'd go for that but anyways, especially if you're going to be playing stuff like GW you can't really go wrong with either of the cards, but the 6870 is the stronger one out of those 2.
