So I hate making these kind of threads, but I am torn between two options, and in Certain games and situations the AMD falls short, and in other games it's faster.

I want to know if I should go with the MSI Twin Fozr 7950 or a EVGA Non Refrence cooler 760. Both would be the same price.

Things to consider:

I will be getting a 550-650w seasonic power supply.
I will be pairing this up with an Intel i5 3570k, i will be overclocking this to about 4.4-4.5 ghz with an h100i.
The motherboard does support SLI/Crossfire. If i was to go with SLI/Crossfire in the future which would be better? The prices of these two cards are actually the same but i dont think the AMD comes with the games anymore. Also i will be overclocking these graphics cards so which would be better for that and which would give better performance. The main games i play is Battlefield 3 i will be buying BF4 and i also play a lot of league of legends even though its not gpu intensive. BF3/4 will run better on AMD i heard? Is this true also i heard that Intel Cpus usually work better with Nvidia GPU's and AMD cpu's work best with AMD Gpu's is this true? Also which would run quiter as my pc is around silence. Again i also wanted to know who has better drivers? I know its head to head liek today amd but tommorow nvidia but in general which usually has less bugs?

Any help is appreciated, Thanks a lot for taking your time and reading this!!

amd gpus take less cpu resources so no they dont work better on amd hardware they work just as well with either.
nvidia on the other hand do use a little more cpu on intel setups than they do on amd setups. something to do with how the cards cache. but im not 100% sure... maybe 1 of the gfx card experts can help on this.

I was actually thinking the 7950 would be better because it has more VRAM does it make a difference on 1 monitor on 1080p gaming?
