Dilemma Sapphire Radeon 7950 Boost vs MSI Geforce 660ti Power Edition

Hi Experts,

I live in India.
The prices for the above 2 cards are as follows:

Sapphire : Rs. 24500

MSI: 21000

I currently have a MSI 7850 upgrading to add a little grunt to my current config.

My usage is all FPS ranging from Battlefield 3, crisis 3, black op2 etc.
Some emulation on Dolphin, PCSX2.

CPU: i7 2600K
MOBO: Asrock Z77 Extreme 4

I am on the verge of buying this, have already ordered the MSI 660ti, I have always been an ATI user from 4870, 5850, 6950 and now 7850.

660Ti will be my NVidia purchase in a longtime user MSI 260 196 core edition sometime back.

I can still cancel the 660 TI and reorder from the same website.

But was wondering is the sapphire 7950 worth the extra money?
Request Help from Guru to help me make up my mind.

It shows the 7950 as being Rs. 22955 for me, performance wise the 7950 wins by a quite a bit on most games, but Sapphires quality and customer service isn't the best so customer service wise MSI wins.

Personally I'd buy the 7950 even though I've had issues with them previously, but I like bang for the buck performance no matter the issues.
Here's a link to lots of benchmark results on Unigine Valley.
I bought my two PowerColor 7950s for about $500 usd, and they're beasts.
