The GTX 260 core 216 are great cards. With a simple overclock, they run right on par with the GTX 280 cards.

I would go with the 4870 1GB because of my board. But if you have an SLI capable board, for sure go with the Core 216.

Yes, VERY simple. It's usually a slider bar in a small program.

It would make more sense to get the best performing card you can afford irregardless of whether you can run in Crossfire or SLI.

Is it crossfire capable? If so, go with the 4870.

Buying a card that is supported by your board's multi-GPU technology provides a great upgrade path for the future. You can simply drop in another a get a great increase in performance.
The GTX 260 Core 216 and the HD 4870 1GB perform almost exactly the same, so don't worry about it.
