Default which combo?

Hi, ive purchased all my copmonents for my new build apart from my case and graphics card, the total i can spend on the two together is 230 and i wasnt sure wether to go for

coolermaster 690 and HD radeon 4870

or

coolermaster 690 and geforce 9800gtx+

or

coolermaster stacker 831 and hd radeon 4850

or

coolermaster stacker 831 and geforce 8800gts

or any other combo which would work well

please not:

1) there is no chance i am going to be using crossfire/sli
2) i have sufficient power for either combo, as long as the cm 690 will fit a toughpower 750w psu

i like the case and the 4870 performs better than the 9800GTX+ i think in higher res or something.
Though the 9800GTX+ and th e4870 is pretty similar from the benches i have seen.
