More VRAM (896 vs 512.)

If it's something you're going to hang onto for 2-3 years, then you'll need more than 512MB.

There's also the option of waiting until the 1GB 4870 is released.

The 4870 is the stronger card until you hit the VRAM limit which even some of today's games will at a high res/AA.

i7-2700k @ 5.0 GHz
