New Build - Asus Nvidia GTA660Ti DirectCU II OC or VTX3D AMD HD 7870 Black Boost Edition?

Hi Guys,

Long-time lurker and used this site many-a-time for great research. However I can't find a thread comparing these 2 cards.

Basically I'm doing my first new-build in 4yrs and have sorted the specs apart from a dilemma between 2 great graphics cards. Have always had Nvidia cards, but I'm no fanboy and simply want the best bang for my buck!

The 2 options I've whittled it down to are either:
1. VTX3D HD 7870 Black Boost Edition 2048MB (http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX-013-VX) - £155.99 (~$240)
or
2. Asus GTX 660 Ti DirectCU II OC (http://www.scan.co.uk/products/2gb-asus-gtx-660-ti-directcu-ii-oc-28nm-6008mhz-gddr5-gpu-967mhz-boost-1058mhz-cores-1344-2x-dl-dvi-) - £179.59 (~$277)

What do you think I should go for, is there really £25/$40 speed/power difference between these cards?

Thanks in advance for any advice

  1. go for nvidia
  2. The 660Ti is a few quid more but you might still get the free game.

    if you go for the 660ti use bt shop as they sell the Asus for £176 and 7950 by msi is only £180 from overclockers but out the 2 cards grab the 7870 as Vtx3d has powercolor as a parthner improving the brand overall
