Default better video card setup?

im confused with all the new cards and ive been doing some searching but no real answers found...

what is best, HD4870 in crossfire or GTX260 in SLI?

im trying to build a computer that will last a few years without updating. if anyone can recommend a motherboard and CPU to go along with either setup that would be nice also.

lets say price in not a problem... but lets not go crazy haha.

i plan to overclock but not to extreme, just to get the most performance i can without going to huge fans or water setups.

4870 in Crossfire would be the better of the two.
