1080p Best GPU at the moment for Gaming?

Which would be the best GPU to buy to play at 1080p at the moment?
I was gonna choose between the XFX 7950 (FX-795A-TNFC) and the Asus Gtx 760 with Direct CUII Cooler
But then all ppl keep saying that i should go with AMD cuz next gen console will be optimazed for it but all i can afford would be that XFX card for AMD cuz the asus 7950 one is like $80 more

Idk if the card would get too hot inside my case where my CPU idles at 41° that makes me thinks on Nvidia which it suppose to be cooler .

Any suggestion??

Build:
CPU: F8350
Motherboard: Crosshair V Formula Z
Heatsink: Cooler Master V6 GT
RAM: Corsair Vengance LP 16 GB 1600Mhz
HDD: 2 Tb Seagate Barracuda
PSU: Corsair GS800

    You can only tell the difference between a GTX760 and a 7950 with a synthetic benchmark.
    For case cooling, I would pick a card with a stock blower type cooler.
    They send hot air directly out the back of the case. Fan type coolers may do a better job of gpu cooling, but the hot air goes into the case impacting the cpu cooler. Here would be a good GTX760:

    This would be a good 7950: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161420

    I would discount the FUD you hear about AMD being favored for games. Game developers will not restrict their market by not supporting Nvidia.

    I see, too bad i cant get that EVGA, neither the IceQ card here in my country but the one they are selling is this one

    I guess it should has to be kinda the same and it is only $10 less but im wondering if those would be too loud?
    Too be honest i have never liked the aspect of the EVGA cards xD but right now i care more about nice performance for the resolution mentioned and keep the temps the lowest i can.
    I will aslo be doing Crossfire or SLI in the future after choosing one card.
    Im also concern about 1 GB less on the GTX 760 .. idk if that would affect my gameplay since im gonna be playing MMORPG's like Soul Blade.
