Default need some quick advice

I am really not into video cards anymore, at all. Nor HTPC's.

What would you suggest for an HTPC, down to 1 of 2 cards:

ATI 3870
NV 8800GT

ATI does both VC1 and h.264, while NV cannot do VC1 offload yet. Both cards seem similar in gaming performance, while ATI has always been better at "multimedia" crap which an HTPC has to excel at. Any opinions? DVI to HDMI will be the connection method to a 70" RPTV.
