Smile Which video card?

For the price, should I get a 8800GT Nvidia or a ATI Radeon 3870?

I just looked on NewEgg and the ATI 3870 and 8800GT seem to be pretty similiar in price. I think I will go with the Nvidia one if it delivers better performance.

That mobo doesn't have PCI-E 2.0, but that's fine, it's not necessary right now.
