Well, I can get a brand new MSI twin II 5870 for 220 or a brand new 560 ti for 250. What do you think is the better choice? I probably am going to get two, but this is just for one.

5870 will initially be stronger - when you crossfire them, then they won't be as strong as the 560's in SLI - either way they will be close

Never realized how close the 2 were in performance. I'd go with the 560.

Can I ask why? It seems like the 560 does slightly worse.

Looks pretty even to me. Some games favor the 560 while others favor the 5870 with the largest difference being the tessellation performance heavily favoring the 560.

Okay, I'm thinking I'll go 560. I like EVGA, but should I go for the MSI for the better cooling?

The scaling is better.

560s are beastly cards. SLI 560s is probably the best bang/buck high-performance setup.

However, I'd recommend the 2GB 560s, just give you a little more flexibility for bigger monitors.
