So which is better in your opinion and why?? I'm trying to make up my mind between the two...
If you think ATI, could you also suggest a mobo thats i5 and crossfire compatable? Thanks!

Well that's not a fair comparison since the GTX 275 is a faster, and more expensive card than the 4870. Better to compare the GTX 275 with the 4890 and the GTX 260 to the 4870. Now for price/performance? 4870 & GTX 260 all the way as long as it's 1680x1050 or less (whichever you find cheaper). 1900x1200+ and you should consider the 4890 imo. It tends to be cheaper than the GTX 275 and typically handles OCing better.

Sorry, no knowledge on i5 boards yet.
