I believe they are very comparable in almost all respects.  I personally would save the money and go for this Vortex scope. http://swfa.com/Vortex-35-10x50-Viper-Rifle-Scope-P10819.aspx

Comparable scopes with a disparity in warranty.

Nikon is hit-and-miss.

Vortex is hit-and-hit.

Go for the Vortex.

Just sold a Monarch 4-16.  Having Elite 4200s and a Vortex Viper, I thought they were all on the same playing field and very similar comparing side by side.  The person that bought it said it was on par with his Viper.
 
I would go with the better deal of the two.

Ordinarily I am a Huge Nikon Fan, but with the sale on Viper's right now, I'd have to go that route.

I'd get Talley Lightweights probably medium height.
