First of all, the prices of GPU's in my country is pretty messed up, i will be coding all prices in terms of $USD to make things easier.

Sapphire 7870 xt = $244
Sapphire 7950 Vapor-X = $328
MSI GTX660TI twin frozr iv = $312
MSI GTX760 Gaming = $368

Lets say with my budget, i could get the new GTX760 for $368, but would it be reasonable?? Or should i just get the 7950 or 660ti??

And if excluding prices, which would have the best performance for current games maxed out? Please help me thank you!

If you have the Money go For GTX 760 its a Very Powerful GPU but if you tight Some how just get the 7870 XT and you will be fine ! but GTX 760 is really good for the upcoming game like BF4 !

Thats, pretty typical pricing actually. Except for that GTX760, which is about $100 more than it should be.
The best value is the 7870 XT, the best performance card (excluding the 760 because of the price) is the 7950.

Wouldn't the Sapphire 7950 be more future proof due to having 3gb of vram compared to the others at 2gb only?? games in the future might require more right??

Top end games are starting to use more than 2GB at 1080p (I have observed it personally with Crysis 3), though by the time 2GB will bottleneck games like 1GB does now, all these cards will be long obsolete and need replacing anyway.
So yes, 3GB can benefit you now, but isn't vital too have.

If you can wait a few months, you can get a 7970 for the around the same price of the 760. AMD will be releasing their next gen cards some time this fall and price drops are likely to ensue.

in that case, taking into account the price of gtx760, it would be wise to go for the 7950 right?? I'll be gaming in 1080p on a 23' ips monitor.

I already said that the 7950 is the one to get. the 760 performs better, but not enough to justify the price difference IMO.
