For those prices, the GTX650Ti Boost is the better deal. I've read a number of reviews of the GTX650Ti Boost, and although various tech sites differ, the review I trust most on this one is HardOCP, who found the GTX650Ti Boost to be marginally better than the HD7850. Both could play on all the same settings, but they said the experience on the GeForce card was a little better.
Assuming your PSU is of reasonable quality, it should power either card without trouble. What brand and model is it?

Remember, you get 3 major game titles with the AMD card.

The GTX650Ti Boost is slightly stronger, and according to you, slightly cheaper as well. That makes it the clear bang/buck winner. Unless your games strongly favor AMD, I'd get the GTX.
Edit: That's a very good point about the free games. If you're interested in them, the value proposition gets turned upside down, and the Radeon is the better value.
