If you want to go to HD 4870 Crossfire mode, then get the HD 4870.. otherwise the GTX 260...

Both are same performing

OR a a 4850 X2 which has awesome cooling ( you need good airflow though) and is almost as good as a GTX280, while being ~370.

or just stick to a gtx280 cuz its a nice single card solution and doesnt have to worry about games being multi-card ready
Current Build:
Intel 8700k | 16GB G.skill Trident Z | Z370 Gigabyte Auros Gaming Extreme |
Asus GTX1080 Strix | Corsair H100i V2 | Corsair 750D | Corsair RM850X

Or get one 4870 and wait later on down the road for another one for crossfire because you can't afford a 4870x2 atm. I'm sure the 4870s will drop in price in about 6 months eh?

EDIT: Wait wait... 1337 JohnN, I totally forgot about the 4850X2. That thing's only $100 more than an ASUS 4870DK. What's the scoop on that card? Sorry for hi-jacking this thread. Lemme know if it gets out of hand and I'll bump my previous thread.
