GTX 660 vs. HD 7870

Hey everyone,
The 7870 and GTX 660 are equal in price, I'm talking about these:
HD 7870: http://amznly.com/ko
GTX 660: http://amznly.com/kp

I'm playing at a 1080p resolution, playing these games:
CoD: Mw2
Cod4 promod
CoD: Black Ops 2
Battelfield 3

And the motherboard will be an Asus M5A97 R2.0.
Thanks for reading/commenting : -)

  1. The HD 7870 will peform better, and will run cooler than the typical blower fan on the 660.
  2. The 7870 is a little bit faster.
  3. You should go with a Radeon HD 7870 XT (Tahiti LE). HD7870XT is equivalent or better than a GTX660Ti and it only costs a bit higher than the HD7870. Have a look at the performance of HD7870XT at:

  4. 660 is better in battlefield but 7870 beats it in CoD. It depends on a game.
  5. I'm seeing the performance in this recent article as basically identical:

    The GTX 660 is actually about $20 cheaper after rebates, but the 7870 comes with two free games. There are no 7870 LE models available, and they would be $40-$60 more expensive than the 660. I think I would go for the 7870 IceQ you listed for a nice quiet experience and the two free games. If cost is all that matters, you won't lose anything by getting the GTX 660.
