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 : -)

The HD 7870 will peform better, and will run cooler than the typical blower fan on the 660.

660 is better in battlefield but 7870 beats it in CoD. It depends on a game.

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.
